Description

A peak east of the main crest, essentially a spur on the end of the ridge running north east from Gendarme Peak.

There's a conspicuous triangular wall on its south side, and easily seen from Fifth Lake - home to a notable 5.6 route.

Getting There

Standard North Fork trail until you hit the turn off for Sam Mack Meadow; head north west to Forth and Fifth Lakes (basically stay on trail). There are camp sites on the south west edge of Fifth Lake (10,787 feet).

The Diamond is a pretty classic route! Todd Battey, Margy Floyd, Derek Kum and I climbed it two days after Todd and I climbed Dark Star. Needless to say it was one of the best Sierra weekends of my life. It being 5.6 I thought we could probably simulclimb the whole thing.However, it turned out to be a bit more real than anticipated.When the broad "Diamond" shaped lower part joined the knife edge upper part I was unable to see where the so called 5.6 went.I ended up leading a thin crack pitch that was more like 5.9/10. 8/1997. It is a worthy choice! Sep 10, 2018
