Description 

The Atridae is a great section of cliff that sits up above the Pines just left of the Organ Pipes. The showcase wall is a main shield of rock called the "Flight Deck" which faces the campground and contains climbs like Have A Nice Flight (5.12a) and Orestes (5.11+). The right-hand side of the wall has the classic chimney of Agamemnon (5.5) and some Yosemite-esque wide challenges like Wizard of Ice (5.10) and Electra (5.10-). Between these climbs and the Flight Deck is the popular moderate Muldoon (5.7). To the left of the Atridae are the Pilot Error Wall and the King Rat Gully.


Getting There 

Approach via a direct trail up from the campground. A small split to the left and some 3rd class gains the Flight Deck. 5 minutes approach time.

Muldoon 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b PG13  Australia : Mount Arapiles : The Atridae
A fantastic route on great rock that ascends the right hand arete of the main face of the Atridae Wall. Starts up a short wide left facing corner crack to an orange cave then up short crack to belay on a good ledge and the arete. Great climbing with good moves on juggy holds leads up right past square flat red overhang and onto the face above to top....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
