Diamond Rib** HS 4b

Adjacent Climbs
<< Central Slabs
 
Mayday >>
[Dean on diamond rib HVS, 3 kb]The most obvious line of the crag. Bold climbing on the easier sections with good gear protecting the harder bits (although you may need to look quite carefully to find it). Follow the slabby arete as closely as possible without straying right onto Mayday. Pass the bulge at half height on the left and finish with care on whatever looks safest and most secure once you reach the looser ground at the top. Tree stump belays nearby or proper tree belays considerably further back.

I did a sort of variation on this route due to lazy guide book reading and imminent rain. I went straight up the middle of the slab via a short flake/corner at mid height. Was bold but very nice :)

AP has soloed in the past, but poor pro & suspect rock meant that he was more nervy this time around. Meadfoot is a generally uninspiring place. I am a keen advocate of trad climbing but I think this place would be improved no end by being bolted. The crag would also benefitted by removing the large amounts of litter - any volunteers?
