Hey guys- I was looking at a Diamondback Release 29 3. I ride mild trails and pavement and wanted to know your thoughts on it? I want to eventually get into more trail riding. Is it a good all around bike? Does it climb well, efficient, etc

This is a solid bike. My friend has a release and I have ridden it. The bike has been used from double black trails, DH parks to blue/flow trails. It is a solid bike, and the release 2 is also very good.

that is kinda true, but the bike still is great. I personally own an enduro HT (64-65* HT)

If you're buying it new there's much, much better bikes you can get for 3k, especially if you look on the used market (which I'd recommend). The Release is probably a fine bike but its pretty basic. You could save money or get a better preforming bike for less if you look into used bikes.

These bikes do get a good spec for the money, especially if you can find them on sale. I had a friend who picked one up on sale for about 2k. If it’s an intro bike you can’t go wrong but as noted above the geo might not be exactly earth shattering.
