Climb an interesting gaston layback boulder problem which trends up and left to a small corner then launch up a technical short arete to a small roof. Here, an interesting sequence of slopers and wide technical compression will engender the start of a pumpy redpoint crux encounter. Gain huge blocky holds and a solid rest before a final run-out 5.8 section to the chains. You could carry or place a mid sized cam which is much less exciting but would protect a large but safe potential fall from easy terrain.
It is on the upper tier of the Upper Snake Eyes Wall. The approach is mildly technical either way: crawl through a bouldery maze to a squeeze-hole right above Diamondback, or climb a short, easy bolted traverse on the opposing wall to anchors. Lowering back down is easy for the climber and belayer after climbing/cleaning from your TR.
