Diamond Splitter is the second rapid that requires scouting on the Bottom Moose River. Scout this from the right side of the river as the river turns left. It consists of a couple of holes and waves leading up to the final drop. As you paddle toward the right side of this rapid you will approach a diagonal shaped hole along the right bank just above the drop. Hit this diagonally and aim to stay right. The rock at the bottom is flat shaped rock that angles to the left. The top of the rock features sharp edge running the length of the rock, hence the name Diamond Splitter. In high water this rock can be under water. Some people do run the left side of this rapid and boof into the water below. There is a nasty hydraulic on the left side and this should only be attempted by experts.
