The very large flake has fallen, gave all the staples a tug and none were loose. Grade about the same.

My darling wife led this route - thought it easy for an F4 (considering the likes of "The Jam" in the "Cuttings" area - which she also lead). Can't fault the setting though - right next to the ocean and quite secluded (as a decent trek is required to get there).

Much more interesting climbing than the others done at Diamond slabs today, great holds up the flake, and a bit more of a thinker to clip the belay.
