Access Issue: 2018 Seasonal Raptor Closure: Upper pitches of the Diamond Details


Banana Hammock starts at the bottom of a wide, rightward-trending crack. After the crack, the route joins Mean Mug, which ascends the face using a series of blocks and slabs. A single bolt protects the upper slab.


Between Mean Mug and Smiley Kylee.


Standard rack to 3", 4-5" cams optional. A 70 m rope for top rope. A single 60 m rappel will reach ground from Smiley Kylee, but be careful because it is close.


Between Smiley Kylee and Mean Mug is a short curving crack that can be a variation start to Mean Mug. Aug 18, 2015

Climbed Banana to start, but on the ledge it seemed to make more sense to me to continue up Mean Mug instead of Smiley Kylee. A fun combo. Apr 4, 2016

#4 protects lower section, #5 can be used higher. Fun alternative start to Mean Mug. Jul 3, 2016
Despite looking wide this climb also goes pretty easily without any wide gear. So, go for it even if you don't have 4-5" gear. Bring some small pro for the thin stuff higher up. Single rack to 3" is sufficient, 4 and 5 optional. Aug 21, 2016

Didn't use the #4/5, but found two small (0.2 x4) cams very comforting higher up (before and after the bolt). Nov 8, 2016

Super fun jamming through the lower crux, and good face moves in the upper sections. Great route overall. May 31, 2018
