Route Description Suggest change

Wandering 170 meters up Tiger Wall this is the longest climb at Araps.

P1: Start near memorial plaque L of chimney system.

P2: Straight up with interesting move 15 feet off belay ledge.

P3: Crux pitch. Choose smooth wall or slabbing dihedral and cross R over the chimney system to belay ledge.

P4: Poorly protected. There is a message etched on the rock showing the two possible options for the climb. This is in reference to that pitch taken from the chockstone forum that better explains that ( chockstone.org/Forum/Forum.…):

"The start of the big diagonal pitch on Syrinx is very poorly protected. Falls to the ledge have resulted in a death and another major injury in the last few years.
A better way to start this pitch is to traverse right from the belay for about 10 metres to a thin crack then climb the crack until it is easy to climb diagonally right; this crack is actually part of The Lute. This offers much better protection and easier route finding and does not detract from the climb."

P5: Traverse R, jug haul on short exposed overhang, and back R to set up belay.

P6/7: Combine w/ a bit of rope drag or split up. Stay L on terraces following the ocassional upward weakness.

Descend via Ali's or Central Gully track.
