Getting into some good hand jams low on the route....


This great climb has a little bit of everything. It has crack climbing to laybacks to face to slab. Might be easiest to skip the bolted belay and be careful getting to the first bolt, at most 5.6.

12 bolts + anchors

My favorite 10 at Diablo. Varied climbing and well protected. Crux is short section 10c. Most of climb 10a/b mostly 10a. Must do climb.

Hi guys -

FA was by Rick Bradshaw, I think assisted by his wife Leslie. Probably 2000.

This is do-able with a 50m rope, but it sucks and requires a bit of sketchiness. 60m rope highly recommended. Really fun climbing but the rock could be better.

I would go ahead and reccomend the bolted belay. But that may not be your cup of tea. Either way a really fun climb. Don't get tunnel vision. It's got all you need.

Felt the rock was excellent for Diablo. Great position with many cruxes.
