6 pitches. A great multi-pitch climb that will take you half a day to climb, with fantastic scenery overlooking Squamish and beyond. Everyone in the free world has climbed this uber-classic and rightfully so! Diedre offers up 6 pitches of spectacular slab and dihedral climbing on the south side of the Apron. Route finding is not an issue, however, should you get lost, ask the party in front of you where to go. Bolted stations on every pitch allow retreat should the crowds overwhelm you, otherwise enjoy!

Bring some smaller pro if you have it, and a full rack of nuts.
