Description 

Since I am in fact Petsfed from rockclimbing.com, I'll use essentially the same description from there.

Starting from a distinctive right-facing dihedral nearly center on the Diamond Buttress, link ledges, right-facing dihedrals, and gullies via the path of least resistance. Several bushes must be climbed through to proceed/belay. The final (short) pitch winds its way through what appears to be a roof, although it is stepped around, onto a low-angle slab. There is little to belay from at the top of the pitch.

Protection 

Standard Snowies Rack (1 set of nuts, 1 set of cams from .25"-3")
