Bard Buttress & The Tiger Wall
The Bard Buttress at sunrise
One of the most prominent features at Arapiles is the Bard Buttess which sits at the foot of the Bluffs. It is home to the classic Eurydice (5.9+) and the less popular, but perhaps better quality, The Desired (5.10a), as well as the popular namesake Bard (5.6). The Tiger Wall is the massive wall that makes up the left (northern) side of the Bluffs. This wall is home to the longest climbs at Arapiles, most of which are moderate, but unfortunately they are generally of more average quality.
Follow the main trail out of the campground up to the obvious nose of the the Bluffs. Continue around to the right for the Tiger Wall.
