3 out of 5 stars Good route

Don't remember exactly when I did it. Route seems to be easy to protect but I have never led this one. If this is 5.8, I would rate Diedre 5.0 to 5.4.

I enjoyed myself on this but had trouble with a bit of an overhang.

4 out of 5 stars exciting lead

Having top roped this before, I gave it a go on lead.
Very easy to protect, but the crack has kept a few cams. I found you were able to place a cam directly against an old broken piton to prevent it from walking deeper and joining the other "fixed" pieces. Be sure to use long draws. I actually ended up using two 120cm. It it a 5.8 in both Squamish guidebooks.

Graded a 5.8 in the squamish select. I felt it was more of a 9
