Description

The rightish side of the Diamond has 3 diagonal overhangs. This route climbs through the notch in the lower overhang, and then goes right to a notch on the Braack Ridge.

This route was originally rated 5.7 A2, but goes free at 5.8+/5.9-

Location

It used to start at the huge pillar which has apparently fallen over. So start in that area.

Protection

A standard rack with a couple of 3-4 inch cams

I thought the crux as being where the crack thins out 40 ft. below the first overhang. This was in the 80's though. It might be different now. Great route. Jul 13, 2018
