Diamond, Longs Peak, New Routes. Christopher Robin and Water- hole N° 3 are two new Grade V routes on the Diamond of Longs Peak. I did both solo, taking two days on each. These right-side routes begin with difficult nailing on the lower sections, but the cracks improved to A1 near the summit. Christopher Robin is blessed with a comfortable bivouac ledge while Waterhole N° 3 required a hanging bivouac.
