DescriptionThe Diamond Wall is overlapped, overhung, and riddled with elegant diagonal seams and cracks perfect for side pulling through high step face moves to the key hold above. A truly adventurous yet sporty feel. The gear is fun to fiddle with, the rock is high quality yet engaging, there are some creaky flakes so use caution. Save some juice and commit to the fierce last moves of the route which are protected by a couple of solid looking LA's.
Onsighters will be well rewarded by managing the rope drag properly, and bringing their GPS-like route finding skills.
This route has it all, technical face, underclings, a few jams, tricky gear, and adventure. A magnificent climb in a perfect setting.
To descend... scramble down the gully on the right after topping out OR rappel the route with two ropes.
