Bard Buttress Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: The Bard Buttress
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).
Follow the main trail out of the campground up to the obvious nose of the the Bluffs.
