Description:

The crag's must-do classic. Starts right of Across Enemy Lines and follows the obvious diagonal (up and left) crack system for 2 short pitches or 1 long one to just past Pearl Harbor's first belay station just left and below a large roof. Work back to the right and up under the roof to Pearl Harbor's 2nd belay station. Rap Pearl Harbor.

This is the funnest climb I've done all summer. The line is obvious and super fun. I had a partner who'd done it before so I got to lead both of the super-amazing pitches. the liebacking corner of the second pitch is ridiculously fun.

Actually linked Tree Roof and the second pitch of Diagonal. Too bad the fun stuff is over so quickly.

Good stuff - first did this the summer of 2003 with Tom. Did this again today with Jody. This really is one of my favorite routes on the front range, a good challenge for my abilities and an aesthetic line in general.
