A two pitch variation to the Garden Trowel Route, tackling the steep wall and overlap directly above the first pitch.
Pitch one as for GTR. Belay on slab at base of Diamond Face; single bolt augments natural pro belay.
Follow an initial left facing corner in the centre of the overlaps passing to the left of a prominent horn, moving back right along a weakness then up to a shallow groove and belay.

Take highest ramp on right until bridging the large corner. Clip bolt on face and move left into hand crack and up past flakes to bolt belay.

32425m4No
 

Tackle flake directly above belay before moving up and rightwards past two bolts into corner below roof. Bridge the corner and clip the bolt overhead before moving leftwards along the line of the roof. Exit up parallel cracks to bolt belay on large block below the prow of GTD. Immaculate rock.
