Description

A Lower Apron route. Might be the easiest way to actually find the base of Diedre, Banana Peel, Over the Rainbow, etc. A fairly sustained slab route and a logical link-up contender for Over the Rainbow.

Location

Climbs the Lower Apron, from the ground to the base of all the South Apron Routes. From the carpark, walk South past the outhouse for maybe a minute, you should see two (as of 2011) scrubbed bolt-lines, you're going to the second one. "The start of the route is marked by a slanting crack with a cedar near the base" - Marc Bourdon, Squamish Select. At the second belay, go right. The left path is an 11a variation: "Sorry, Joe".

Protection

Mixed, mainly bolts but some medium cams are nice. Nuts unecessary.

As of summer 2013, no longer a small cedar in the crack near the base of this, or the tree island above. We always considered this a 5.8 route with a crux move to the first bolt, pro below #.75 or #1 camalot .Been on harder 5.7 slabs in Ca. and I am a poor slab climber, but I like this. Feb 8, 2014
A great slab climb that has seen less attention since the addition of Rambles to its left some years back. 3 pitches of friction slab on great rock make this a great approach climb to the Deidre ledge above.

Do bring a few cams in the .5 - #1 range as most climbers will find them necessary, especially at the outset until you clip the first bolt. May 31, 2018
