The left-hand line of bolts up the attractive easy-angled face to a lower-off. Low in the grade.

A nice route - very easy at the start with a lack of bolts (but none needed), then once hard-ish (well bolted) section in the middle.

You must have been lost - it's got loads of bolts (7 of them), but the first two are shared witht he central route...

The topo doesn't show it sharing any of the bolts with Diamond Boulder (the central route)! Plus there were other people on that route anyway.

Agreed with Sarah, when we did the climb we had climb the central route then move left to do Diamond Geezer...

The topo shows you use the bottom two "common" bolts and then head left from the center. The second part of the route is the harder, but only 4 in my opinion.

The line on the topo doesn't follow the bolts of the F4 to the right of it. But common sense dictates that you use the first two bolts on the 4... otherwise it's a 40 ft solo to the first bolt on snappy rock... no thanks! Anyway, used the first 2 bolts and then broke left. Cracking easy route. Definitely not a 5 compared to Dream of white porsches/It's my life/slings shot etc etc - i'd say it was F4...

Definitely not a 5 when compared to just about any other 5. The top section seems to have lost a hold giving you a few more immense jugs to grab as you walk up.

Apart from a few tricky moves in the central section it's easy, but in a lovely situation.
Adrian Holmes - 26/Sep/09

There's now a new route to the left of this starting with an overhang, we reckoned a 5 or 4+
Jon Peterson - 13/Jun/11

Nice start on big holds leads to a route relying more on precise footwork. The top move leaves you feeling a touch exposed, especially if you're more used to climbing with your arms, rather than your legs.
