Diamond, Diamond Lil Route, Longs Peak. During two July days Michael Covington, Dennis Hennek and I climbed a new route on the highest part of the Diamond Face of Longs Peak. It is a line wholly independent of others on this face and goes up between the Grand Traverse Route and Diamond 1. Of the 12 pitches, three were free at HVS, three were free with some aid and the rest were steep, sometimes overhanging, all-out aid.
