Description:

Around the corner to the left of The End Is Near. Look for an obvious face with several cracks forming 2 diamonds stacked on top of each other. This is one of the oldest established climbs in the York area. Climb an initial crack to a sloping ledge, pass the diamonds to bucket holds at the lip of the overhang. Mantle and finish easier rock to the top.

3 out of 5 stars Double Diamond (probably some of the best rock @ mt. A)

Left leaning hand crack on good rock. Leads into face climbing. Beware of loose rocks. You can always take advantage of the offwidth for protection/easy way out of the face climbing. Anchor above off of trees.
