Step off a pedestal to the left of "Zig Zag", clip a bolt & make a funky move to gain the face above. Continue up a fun face to 1st set of anchors. (5.9, 60 feet)

Lower here, or continue up on a face with a small roof and higher anchors. Break up the pitches or bring 14 draws & lower off Mussys. (5.9, 55 feet 115' total).

2 rappels or 70 meter rope REQUIRED from upper anchor.


Just left of Zig Zag, below & left the Diamond Face proper


Pitch 1: 7 bolts, Mussy Hooks
Pitch 2: 6 bolts, Mussy Hooks


Love this new route. Lower section felt 5.8, but the upper section felt more like 10a--that is, we did the full length version. There's a reachy clip before the overlap on the second section. Definitely have a 70 meter rope, and knot the end. 1 hour ago

Added a 6-bolt extension to this route, still around 5.9. 14 draws w/maybe 1 longer for 1st anchor bolt. A 70 meter/double rope required for lower from full pitch. Enjoy! Dec 28, 2017

I would call this a slab meets slopey kind of route. Arguably easier than 5.9 if you climb the staircase available to you to the left of the start of the climb. Enjoyable route! Nov 29, 2017

okay, so i look at a route like this and it has: solid rock (better than any of the other routes in the area), fun moves, and nice bolting and it's only 2 stars? why, it's way better than that! i'd say it's easy for 5.9, but a fall before clipping the 2nd bolt would not be good. would be interesting to lead this on gear.
