Golden Rule, ropeless by Shawn Diamond

Damon Corso has kindly sent me these images of Shawn Diamond climbing The Golden Rule on the giant block in the gully near the Secrets of the Beehive area. This climb was first done by Kevin Jorgeson in 2007, as noted in an earlier post.

Around the middle of February, Shawn first top-roped the line and then climbed it ropeless as Damon took some photos. Shawn reported that the line has interesting moves in a spectacular position on top-quality rock. He described it as bit more scary than Rise, his line on the opposite corner of the block, due to it having some awkward moves really high up, though the overall difficulty was not nearly so great.
