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.

Have a Nice Flight 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a PG13  Australia : Mount Arapiles : The Atridae
Start on the Crimpy It'll Never Fly and half way through the traverse left shoot straight up. Fight your way through a hard crux and hopefully make it to the clip or be ready to get some air time. Recover on a flake and then fight through some hard moves to the anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
