This rarely-climbed route is actually quite good. It once had two bolts, which were removed. It still protects adequately well (PGish). It can be toproped from trees at the top of Diamondback, perhaps with a directional.

The initial section isn't well protected, but it's easier, and you can always bail left for gear on the neighboring route.

Climb face to ledge, then up to a crack just right of Arachnid Traction. Go up this until you can traverse right 5' to a thin vertical fingercrack, which is the meat of the route. Up this to where it fades (good nuts), then up a face to a slot with good gear (whew!). Continue up face to some jugs, then move right to the crack finish of Diamondback.

Belay/rappel from a tree with a fixed anchor.


A few feet right of Arachnid Traction.


Standard rack to #1 Camalot.
