Description 

The rightish side of the Diamond has 3 diagonal overhangs. This route climbs through the notch in the lower overhang, and then goes right to a notch on the Braack Ridge.

This route was originally rated 5.7 A2, but goes free at 5.8+/5.9-


Location 

It used to start at the huge pillar which has apparently fallen over. So start in that area.


Protection 

A standard rack with a couple of 3-4 inch cams
