Amazing collection of sport routes on the rim with Northern exposure directly across from Diamond Point. Lots of steep routes, big holds and shady summer days make this area a favorite of summer Rock Climbing guides, Raft guides and locals alike.
Important to know: this area is shady and stays wet after rain for at leat a day.
Exception: there are many routes that don't get rained on, but seepage can be a problem. Check out the Dr. Topo guidebook topo here

For historical purposes and future guidebook authors, I am adding this information at this time about Upper Kaymoor.
I established two routes here in 1997. They may be found by walking east from the Glory Hole around the corner and continuing for another 100 yards or so until you come to a tall and fairly clean wall. Just right of here is a left-facing dihedral and two decent 70 foot routes are just right of the dihedral. Left to right:
Full Moon Fever 10b/c (6 bolts)
Meteor Shower 11b (7 bolts)
When I was climbing there in the 1990's, there were other route possibilities nearby and several mixed routes further east along this wall.
