Large wall just right of the Cheeks.
The most direct way is via the trail to Duck Wall. See the instructions on the Duck Wall page. From Duck wall continue up the gully, which has water running down it most of the year.
You can also approach via the Cheeks. Just continue along the trail that goes along the base of the lower Cheeks.
The third way is from the top of Lookout Point. Go back and left (southwest) until you hit the Collegium, then skirt the base of the wall going towards the Cheeks. Be careful at the point where the top of Duck Wall is very close to this upper band of rock. Soon you will see the Beyond, and then the Diamond.
