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.
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.

Orestes 5.11d 7a 24 VIII E5 6a PG13 Australia : Mount Arapiles : The Atridae
Orestes is the obvious chalked-up left-facing corner that marks the right end of the Flight Deck. It is a striking crack line, one of the few that exist at Arapiles. Climb up the technical corner via hard stemming and jamming to a stance at the roof. Place gear and punch it via hard moves out left under the roof to a stance at a bolted anchor. Be careful not to yard on the terrifying sandy blob thing!!! The second pitch is rarely done....[more] Browse More Classics in International
