Description 

Large wall just right of the Cheeks.

Getting There 

The most direct way is via the trail to Duck Wall. See the instructions on the Duck Wall page. From Duck wall continue up the gully, which has water running down it most of the year.

You can also approach via the Cheeks. Just continue along the trail that goes along the base of the lower Cheeks.

The third way is from the top of Lookout Point. Go back and left (southwest) until you hit the Collegium, then skirt the base of the wall going towards the Cheeks. Be careful at the point where the top of Duck Wall is very close to this upper band of rock. Soon you will see the Beyond, and then the Diamond.

Hell Bent for Glory 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b C0  WA : Index : ... : The Diamond
Ascends a spectacular, shallow left-facing dihedral on the right side of the wall. P1: 5.6. Follow right-trending flake-dihedral system. P2: 10d C0. Long, continuous left-facing dihedral. P3: Right traverse to a dike. P4: Bolted face that follows a dike, trending left. Not often ascended, and relatively little is known about this route. The C0 aid move on P2 was apparently just pulling on one piece by the first ascent party....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
