Nick near the top of "Diamonds are Forever".


Located on the Live And Let Die Boulder, just right of that route, up a right-angling dike system.

Like it's neighbor to the left the first bolt is high, and while the moves to it are easier than that route the landing is far worse. Once the security of the first bolt is reached the climb is reasonably protected with the crux being between the two bolts. Anchor on top and rap from bolts atop Live And Let Die.

Featuring good rock and quality climbing this is worth an ascent. Two stars out of five.


2 bolts, anchors

Thought this was the hardest of the three "5.10d's" I did in the Bond Boulders area. Awkward, off-balance moves up the dike.
