Description Suggest change

The Gift of Grace is sure to get your heart thumping at 180 beats per minute. It is a major challenge to keep your cool while navigating through tenuous cruxes, tiptoeing on miniscule fragile feet and risking some rather scary falls. The climbing is slightly easier than other routes of similar grade on the Endless Wall, but it requires greater focus. Be prepared for some complex arete climbing.

Various cruxes are encountered on this route, the first of which comes right after the first bolt. Immediately after the first bolt traverse confidently left to the arete. Balance your way up to a tenuous facey crux between the third and fourth bolt. Gather your composure and then blitz the remaining arete which includes some insecure liebacking on micro fins.

Climb the arete all the way to the top and mantel out the ledge before reaching below you to clip the anchor. Don't forget to check out one of the most outstanding views of the gorge from the ledge.

This route climbs the furthest right arete on Diamond Point. It shares a set of anchors with "Leave it to Jesus."
