[Climbers on Boat people and Never Get out the Boat, 2 kb]A brilliant long climb. Start up a right-leaning flake. Many people finish at the ledge but the top wall is excellent and well worth doing at only 7b. Photo page 19. © ROCKFAX

Inaccurately quoting my partner "This route requires zero technique and is unworthy of British sport". I thought it was great;-). 7b+.

Superb bit of sport, such quality limestone down at the Diamond! Fell off the flash on the last hard move before the groove, gutted, but went down with only a bit of a fight next go. Classic!

Found it really hard on 4/10/12 partly due to grease and poor beta. Today conditions were much better. Due to a short session I once again didn't venture above the 3rd bolt. But now have a good sequence for the start and managed to use a different sequence for the hard move at the bottom that I couldn't use last time. Will it go before the season ends??

Tom Livingstone - Lead dnf - 29/Sep/12 with George Ullrich

Superb. Boulder problems between juggy shake-outs. Dropped the flash last week going into the base of the big flakeline, bugger!. 1st RP today.

One of North Wales' very best at the grade. Found this quite tough, lots of effort to recover during the redpoint, not helped by The Diamond's occasional greasiness. Power endurance climbing for the first half and good character in the groove, great sport climbing. Do it!
ksjs - Lead RP - 01/Sep/11 with Jim

Quality PE route with great moves. 1st session, 1st rp. Stepped up a bit this week.

Mierda! Greasy again, 2 gos slip sliding everywhere and rushing to beat the dark. Every bit as good as reputation suggests, excellent moves and engaging throughout. Next time...
