Diedre

First ascent: Jim Baldwin & Jim Sinclair, 1962. FFA: B. Woodsworth, M. Lasserre, 1963
By: Millie Evans
Area: Canada, Group: Squamish, Peak: Stawamus Chief, Country: Canada, Region: British Columbia

Diedre is an outstanding route. Every pitch is a delight, hence its popularity. It is six pitches long and all the belays are bolted. A 60m rope is needed but if you had two this would give you an abseil escape option if needed. There is only one real run-out which is a slab traverse on pitch two. It is short lived though – just keep the focus! There is tons of gear on the rest of the route because it follows a sweeping corner crack.

GETTING THERE

The Chief is located on Highway 99 and is unmissable as you drive from Vancouver to Squamish. It towers over the highway just south of Squamish town centre and there are several different parking spots depending on which routes you are heading for. The Apron car park is located about just south of the town centre at the turning to Mamquam Forest Service road. This places you directly below the climbing.

ACCESS

The carpark is 500m north of the Chief campsite. Follow the path past the toilet and scramble up and right to the base of the route.

DESCENT

It is an easy walk of along Broadway ledge and then back onto the main path.

GEAR

Full rack needed, but bolted belays.
