Description 

DRIES FAST!
The level of land rises at the last minute before this cliff, therefore no runoff!

This prominent feature is visible from the NRG bridge and will definitely be on all the trail maps for hiking and climbing that you can find about the NRG.

Diamond Point proper has a huge boulder at its base, if you are rappelling in, don't be fooled by the boulder, keep going all the way to the ground.

Getting There 

Rappel from Diamond Point (single rope). Accessible from Fern Point trailhead.

Can I Do It Till I Need Glasses 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b  West Virginia : The New River Gorge : ... : Diamond Point
Follow the finger crack(crux) until it ends. Traverse right to a right facing corner to the top(this corner is beautiful!). An optional belay may be setup at the start of the upper corner, but with a few long slings, there is no need to break the flow on this excellent route. The upper corner has awesome position on the face. The belayer will not be able to see the leader on the upper corner if done in 1 pitch. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in West Virginia

We do get a bit of runoff on durometer/remission, zygomatic, weatherman's, stuff on the left there...Strike a Scowl is likely the first thing in the whole gorge to dry though, I can agree with that. Also, one of my favorite TR solo areas, so long as there aren't a bunch of tourons up top throwing things down. Watch out for that.
