Description

Diamonds and Rust is a new sport route on the big shelf left of Heterohedral. Start about 10' right of Edge of Reality and 20' left of Heterohedral. This is the same start as Night Moves.

Step up and clip a bolt on the right, and traverse right to a right-facing corner. Climb the corner to a ledge at its top. Climb a tricky slab past an overlap (crux), and continue straight up to the anchor.

Location

The route starts on a big shelf about 20' left of Heterohedral and 10' right of Edge of Reality. This is the same start as for Night Moves.

To get there from the main Bihedral area, traverse left on the narrow exposed ledge past Dan's Line and Group Therapy. Be very careful. Not a good approach for kids or pets. A safer approach can be made by coming up from the Left Side area, but this is a long way from the main Bihedral area.

An anchor has been installed on the right side of the shelf, so you can do a diagonal rappel back to the main Bihedral area instead of reversing the exposed traverse; see ??.

Protection

9 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor with lowering hooks.
