Climb a ramp up to a vertical, slanting right crack. Fight through the pump and finish out above in the trees.

Wanted to mention that the name "crows nest" is merely a place holder since I do not know who the FA is. We called it that because there was a giant nest on the ledge when we first climbed it. I have no idea if anyone had climbed it previously, but it would not surprise me in the least.

Diamond Ledges are about a 10 minute walk from my house, and as far as I've been climbing there we've called it "Crow's Nest." The ascent from the nest can be made easier by climbing the sloped section to the right.
