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.

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.

Pretty fun and straightforward. Best done as 2 pitches or simul the whole thing.
