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.

BRILLIANT !!! I think one of the top 5 pitches on the cliff. The crux is the last 15'. Originally 10+Start up 5.9-ish hands in a bit of a groove, this rapidly goes to thin hands and fingers. Get good rests with some small footholds (I also also remember one really good rest) and remember Ed & Jimmie 28 years ago in EBs. The crux is hard to hang in and protect but takes good gear -- small wires and RPs. Take a couple of whips and then set up a belay on a small stance.
