5 out of 5 stars 14000 ft

Climbing 11 + at 14000 ft is different. Endurance climbing is my specialty, and I ran low on the crux.
I've been caught in a blinding snow storm on every visit up this face. Climb through

5 out of 5 stars Awesome early season day

We did this in May and there was tons of snow up there. The N Chimney was actually better than usual, we were able to crampon up much of it. The climb was awesome though the crux pitch was wet. I was able to send it following, despite feeling like my eyes were going to pop out of my head from the exertion and the altitude.

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

I climbed the Diamond 6 times in summer 2005; this was the final time and by far my worst day up there. I felt out of sorts from the start--even the 5.9 pitches felt really hard for some reason. Once the sun left the face our fingers never warmed up and I ended up completely aiding the crux. It would be a reach for me to free anyway but it would have been nice to at least put in an honest attempt. We rapped from the top of the crux pitch as snow was falling by then.
