Description

Very short route, but easy and fun. Plenty of variations to get to the top. There are very large, loose rocks around the south side so be careful not to knock any down onto your belayer. The route would get more stars if it were a bit longer, or had better rock quality all the way around.

Location

Approach around the east side of the Diamond's main face, past Bumbling Gumbies, up the gully behind the main routes. Original climb starts on east side and works its way up around northwest to the top, but there are many different variations to get to the top.

Protection

Standard free rack. Two old pitons on top with a seat belt for a sling. Could be backed up with small gear, or use some bolts with chains.

Climbed this today not knowing what it was after seeing it from the top of the Green Snatch. Surprisingly fun little climb up a neat formation. We went straight up the south face. Still about 5.6. Bomber holds all the way up. The webbing on top was good enough to lower from. May 10, 2016

This thing is actually pretty good. It's a shame it doesn't get done more often. The hike up isn't too bad. The summit is nice and flat, about 1/2 the size of a picnic table. Nov 1, 2010
