Strenuous and sequency, Diamond Cutter's sharp crimpers will have your fingers begging for mercy.

Thin holds and balancy moves make the start on this route one of the cruxes; stick-clipping or having a spotter on hand is recommended. Follow the crimpers and sidepulls (with the occasional nice deep horizontal) to the top.


Jimmywood section; starts about 10' right of Mammy.


4 bolts, bolted anchors.

Start requires some balance, the crux is around the second bolt, reach up for a dirty incut seam and the second clip is easier. A girl in my group is 5'3" and couldn't reach it so she clipped from the crimp. I don't remember it being sharp but it was crimpy in sections. Cool route, better than the 9's to the right
