Description

The crux is getting from the 2nd to 3rd bolt. The "easiest" way to do it is probably to lunge, but it can be done static as well. I reccommend doing it both ways for the full effect! After the crux, it is easier, but you still gotta hang on. Some of the rock up top can be a bit dusty.

Location

Left of the climb with the greasy crack(Ice Cubes, Popcorn, and Popsicles). There may be a newer route in between them.

Protection

4 bolts + chains

From the anchors of Diving for Rocks to the anchor on the overhang is Lonesome Dove, 5.12. Dec 20, 2008
A hold that's used during the crux broke not long ago. It now gives slightly more purchase with the left hand, but doesn't change the nature of the move and the consensus is that the grade is unchanged.

Diving for Rocks is probably the most famous route on this wall. Sep 29, 2011

This is an awesome route. Really fun dynamic move at the crux. The whole ledge is pretty solid. I wasn't able to do it statically.

The anchors are pretty rusty. Sep 1, 2013

Here is a video of some pretty solid beta for the climb.
