Diamond, “Diamond North”

These two peaks are at the head of Baxter Creek. The ridge between them is easy class 2, but other routes to or from “Diamond North” are class 3-4 and loose, making them a challenge for a one-handed climber.

EDIT: I was shocked to learn that evening that Pat had fallen to her death near the summit of “Diamond North” less than an hour before I was there, and probably no more than 100 yards from my line of descent. She was an excellent athlete, a fierce competitor, and a cheerful and generous person.
