Description 

DRIES FAST!
The level of land rises at the last minute before this cliff, therefore no runoff!

This prominent feature is visible from the NRG bridge and will definitely be on all the trail maps for hiking and climbing that you can find about the NRG.

Diamond Point proper has a huge boulder at its base, if you are rappelling in, don't be fooled by the boulder, keep going all the way to the ground.

Getting There 

Rappel from Diamond Point (single rope). Accessible from Fern Point trailhead.
