Loved this climb! The enduro corner was fantastic. The squeeze chimney was quite fun (but I might be odd in my enjoyment of it). The traverses were easy, but I definitely wouldn't want to take a fall there.
One word to say. Haul your pack whenever you can. The enduro pitch seemed harder. Definately more sustained. The crux was about as strenoua as it gets with the squeeze chimney. topped out on the summit!
Back in 2001, when I'd been climbing a few months, my partner and I decided to finally go for it before he was leaving town. We had never climbed 5.10, and I don't think I slept the night before at our little bivy at Chasm View (we rapped to Broadway, to save time). But the route is fantastic and I've since been back to the Diamond a few times, though I still get a feeling of awe whenever I approach the face.
