Description

A fun, easy ramble to the base of Diedre, Banana Peel, and other classics on the Apron. Good to make those climbs into 10p 5.8 routes. Or do Rambles on its own and rap off. A good first multipitch climb. Might be the shortest approach to a multipitch in Squamish.

Location

Base of the Apron, below Diedre, left of Bottom Line.
From the Apron Parking Lot, walk 40m south along the Apron Connector until an obvious trail goes up to the base.
Either rap down or finish up the Apron and walk off.

Protection

standard rack + bolts. All anchors are bolted. Rap chains.

Really nice climb- although I wouldnt recommend it as a start to Diedre, only because unless you either solo it or can climb it in 10 minutes with your partner, you'll likely be beat to the base by someone on the trail.

Really nice- single rack will do- nothing bigger than a #2, nothing but bolts above the 2nd belay, so you can leave the rack with your partner.

Two pitches is the way to do it for sure. Jul 4, 2017
Highly recommend to do in two pitches. Great start to the day. Best to belay of trees on final pitch Jun 13, 2017

A nice way to tack on a few extra pitches on your way up the Apron. As mentioned in the previous comments, it is easily done in two pitches and is perhaps more aesthetic to do so. Great route to teach beginners on. Jul 3, 2016

Easily done in two pitches. Good fun, it's going to be a popular one. Belay at a tree after the fourth pitch to avoid climbing past your anchor when your second is done.

Thanks again Dr. Frimer, we'll miss you. May 7, 2012
