The diamond is a fun and popular area due to its short approach and moderate routes. It has several quality routes all of which are worth climbing. It is north facing making it good for hot summer days. All routes share the same anchors except Bumbling Gumbies. Mostly sport routes on nice quartzite.

Getting There 

Use the pullout located on the south side of the road 0.2 miles up the canyon from the waterfall. From the pullout walk east about 35 yards until you come to an old rock sign foundation. Take the trail that cuts up the hillside just past the foundation. The diamond is straight up the hill from the sign foundation and is easily visable from the road.

Diamond Spire 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  Utah : Wasatch Range : ... : The Diamond
Very short route, but easy and fun. Plenty of variations to get to the top. There are very large, loose rocks around the south side so be careful not to knock any down onto your belayer. The route would get more stars if it were a bit longer, or had better rock quality all the way around....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
