Scramble to the sweet belay ledge 15 higher than the surrounding ground(easy).
Climb the thin flake that proves to not take any gear(way to wide) up this oft solo-ed line. If you like you can traverse into Strike A Scowl(5.10b) and clip its bolts, but then why not just lead Strike A Scowl and TR this climb(as most do).
This climb is an awesome way to finish a great day. 1st lead Strike a Scowl, set a TR then lower and clean Strike A Scowl. Climb out with your partner off Strike A Scowl's anchors and top it out. Gear Anchor or Tree Anchor available for 1st to belay up second.
East side of Diamond Point proper, obvious huge chimney with the thin flake that makes for easy climbing.
None, except your hands or Strike A Scowl's bolts(5-8ft left).

If you've got some big cams you could easily protect the beginning and probably somewhere else between there and the prominent horn a little above the mid-way point. Sling the horn with webbing.

Started at the base of the climb, vice the upper massive block, and got pro in the corner.
Tricky lieback to get to the off width, which I avoided due to a lack of gear. Found a few placements on the flake just below the "horn", which I slung.
Pretty cruiser from there on up.
