Shady south-facing slabs just above Diamond Lake. This area has some beautiful slabs with delicate, crimpy climbing. Perfect for a hot summer afternoon.

Getting There 

Drive past the Hospital Flat carpark and turn right for the Diamond Lake carpark (you can freedom camp here). Follow the obvious trail up the hill and stay right at a fork near the pit toilet. Walk around the south and east side of Diamond Lake, and cut right on a faint climbers trail immediately past a small wooden bridge. Go up through the forest and blocks to the crags. 15 minute approach
