Begin on Sidewinder
and where that route cuts left continue up over a small roof and past three bolts on featured rock to gain the prominent dike. Traverse left, clip a final bolt, (shared with Sidewinder
and make the long tenuous traverse up and left to the top.
The descent is to the climber's left, where a bit of down-climbing, or a leap, will access a pinnacle with rap anchors.
- Although essentially a variation to Sidewinder this route is equally as good and a recommended alternative if you've already done that route.
5 bolts (3/8"), gear to 3"

Nothing R Rated about this route imo.

Randy - not "R", but maybe "PG-13" because of the traverse.

The traverse is like a zillion times scarier with high wind gusts. I did sidewinder like a month ago or something without wind, and it was scary, but not too bad. I did diamondback today (april 3) with gusts up to 23 mph (according to weather.com) and was practically crapping my pants. The roof was super fun...I really wish I'd made it clean.
