BETA PHOTO: View of Diedre from the base of the cliff.


The Diedre Area is characterized by corners and cracks, ranging from fingers to off-width, great exposure, and perfect rock quality.

The best route in the section is Diedre (5.9+/5.10a), as you may have guessed, though there are many other worth while climb. Budapest (5.11d) is another one that receives top marks.

Getting There 

Easiest to approach by walking left (south) from the North End. The best landmark is the birch tree growing out of the corner/crack on the third pitch of the route Diedre.

Underground 5.11d 7a 24 VIII E5 6a  NH : Cathedral Ledge : The Diedre Area
The Underground is a sneaky colection of high quality, 60'-ish, sustained 5.11 pitches. We did the FA the same day the London Underground was bombed in June 2005. Except for the second half of the first pitch (Deleightmaker) it is all new terrain. A good addition to the other sustained multipitch 11d's that grace the cliff. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
