A compelling combination of power, subtlety, and everything in between, The Diamond has it all. The first move appears to be a bonehead dyno—it's not. Snagging the huge rail takes a surprising amount of keen technique. For many, the real crux begins at the top. I've seen myriad methods of pinching, crimping, open-handing, and otherwise pawing the horrible granite slopers on the arete. Whatever you do, know this: the finish jug is comically good.

This boulder problem redefines—for me—the definition of good climbing. Even after you send it, you'll want to climb it again. And again.
