"The Diamonds are prominent peaks on Cameron Pass with summits offering panoramic views of everything from North Park to the Never Summer Range. They can be climbed in a long, scenic traverse from Montgomery Pass or a more direct ascent from Cameron Pass. Summer and fall are much safer times to savor their summits since avalanches frequently scour their summits in the winter."

I went to Bockman road, but let me tell you, my little chevy cavalier did NOT make it around the bend to the parking lot after the trail. I drove backwards to the trail, turned around, and feared my oil tank would rip out over the periodical diagnal raises in the road. I also moved many a rock after driving over one and hearing that metal SCREECH! I ended trying to find the trial that my school group had gone on...I knew it was around diamond peaks and at a lake!...and had the time of my life hiking up to Agnes Lake across the highway. I got caught in a hailstorm, hid under the cabin porches, and enjoyed the fresh air and plants when the sun came out.
