Description

Follow Redguard through pitch 4 (5.8s). Diving Board begins from the pitch four belay of Redguard.

P1. Traverse left across an obvious, black ramp (spotty pro, 5.6) to left side of the pigeon flake. Continue up the left side of the pigeon flake trending slightly right to a modern two-bolt belay anchor.

P2. From here, traverse left across an airy shelf with modest pro and power up into the steep, left-facing dihedral, belay at a modern two-bolt anchor (5.10c, 50 feet).

P3. Head straight up from the belay into an exhilarating hand / fist / off-width crack (5.11a, 50 feet).

It is possible to link pitches on Redguard, and it is also possible to link pitches 2 & 3 on the Diving Board with careful rope drag management.

This climb is fantastic. The position is among the best in the canyon. It is the Naked Edge's redneck cousin (more fun if a little rough around the edges).

Protection

Rack to #4 or #5 Camalot.

Warning!

The death block is now gone.
