Description

Climb the first moderate pitch (WI3) to a good stance. Attack the upper section (WI4+). The top column does not always come in. This is one of the shorter climbs at Lake Willoughby, and was for years one of the more moderate. In recent years, however, it has seen some rockfall in the summer months. Be prepared for varying difficulties up high. That said, it now has an amazing set of climbable free-hangers (WI6-ish) on the right side of the main roof when it's not fully formed.

Location

Located right of Extensive Homology past the tree line and just left of Zephyr.

Protection

Ice screws. Rap the route. Bring gear for v-threads.
Difficulties are condition dependent. Can be climbed in one pitch with a 70. Feb 21, 2016

i think 4+ is a huge sandbag, even for willoughby! i climbed this in thin(ish) conditions; lead the first pitch (would give it wi4) and followed the second (easily wi5, maybe 5+). i'd followed glass menagerie a few days earlier and think this was substantially harder-- while glass menagerie had more sustained steep ice, it was also stemmable, whereas the crux pillar on diamond was super thin, straight vertical, and marginally protectable at best.
