Wendy enjoying Agamemnon - a memorable moderate!


This is the photogenic chimney tucked up in the Atridae and visable from The Pines. Back and foot and full-body stemming will get you to the top in one or two pitches. Wonderful, fun climbing.


Standard rack. Placements are spaced.

This may have been the hardest 5.5 I've ever done. I seem to remember pulling a heel hook over a bulge.

I don't know about any heal hooks, and I don't really have any idea about the grading either - so different from any type of climbing I've done. Regardless, great fun, great views, and great photo op. A must do if at Araps.

A pleasant shady climb for a hot day. It's ridiculously hard for 5.5, but I thought that almost every climb at the Araps was absurdly difficult for its rating.
