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.

This route is traditional given a 5.9+ rating, but it could just as easily be a modern 5.10. My vote is not to split hairs because they both mean the same thing at Cathedral. Diedre is possibly the best climb of the grade on the cliff as it offers well-protected, full-length, and full value, mostly crack climbing.
