Had a close look and a little test of it, but top-roping caused the rope to run over some rock. Would like to go back.

Tried to follow the line for diamond geezer but couldn't see the bolts, but this line looked far more interesting. The first few moves onto the slab are excellent. Despite the good holds i thought the start deserves more than F4.
