A popular crag on busy days due to its proximity to the parking lot. The routes on the East Face get great sun in the morning and some shade in the afternoon. Generally the South Face has routes 5.10 and under, and the East Face has routes 5.10 and over. On the Ready to Strike Wall on the East Face are Skaha Classics like Sidewinder (5.10c), Cytotoxic (5.11a), and Ready to Strike (5.10a trad).

Getting There 

Take the trail just below the upper parking lot. After 5-10 minutes, you'll pass Daycare and Daycare Quickies with their short, easy climbs. Shortly after passing these crags, you'll see a path going off to the right with a sign for Diamondback. Follow that path up the hill for a couple minutes and you're there. The first routes you come to are on the South Face, and around the corners are those on the East Face.
