The Diamond Crag

Climbs 10 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 60m a.s.l – Faces ?

Crag features
One of the many crags near Eskdale, this crag is to the right handside of the eskdale fisherground bouldering (diamond area). It is a clean Granite crag that is well known. Alot of the routes are soft (MOD - SEVERE) although the climbing is soft, protection is nearly impossible. The two climbs which have been logged so far may have been climbed before and therefor will need updating. if there is any data refering to any older ascents or better information please email the moderator.

Approach notes
Use the path to the Diamond area bouldering, as the crag is to the right of 'the diamond boulder'. There is no known access restrictions for the crag.

I was there two days ago, it's still clean and well used, solo'd a diff on the left and Vdiff that used the ledge (I have to assume a different ledge as it wasn't VS) - I'll upload a pic soon, would love to know where the above two climbs are.

Now four bolts at the top of the crag No gear on the routes as far as I could see, TR or solo IMO. Very pleasant. A bit thin for novices. Lower crag better for this use
