BETA PHOTO: Diamond Point after the rain
The level of land rises at the last minute before this cliff, therefore no runoff!
This prominent feature is visible from the NRG bridge and will definitely be on all the trail maps for hiking and climbing that you can find about the NRG.
Diamond Point proper has a huge boulder at its base, if you are rappelling in, don't be fooled by the boulder, keep going all the way to the ground.
Rappel from Diamond Point (single rope). Accessible from Fern Point trailhead.

Perhaps too popular. It is one of the only places on Endless Wall that might(on a busy day) have a line.Originally a 5.10d R trad line, it was bolted by accident due to poor communication, however, the FA-ers agree to just let this classic line stay bolted.Start from the leaning block atop the giant boulder, climb the cool face straight up to anchors. Clipping the anchors is the crux if you go left, if you go right it is substantially easier....[more] Browse More Classics in WV
