Victoria North West Arapiles Atridae Agamemnon Area

Done as one pitch. And what a pitch: solo the squeeze chimney to start, then stem your way up the chasm for the rest. Perfect friction all the way, and a cheeky little run-out at the end to add spice.

An absolute cracker. Delicate, careful moves needed for the start of this one. Good protection, but not obvious - you have to think about it. My pitch of the day, for sure.

A fine little single pitch. In Perth this would be a must do at any crag, over here it's a bit eclipsed by all the other classics nearby.

The first, second and fourth pitches make this a good slab route, the third and the topout prevent it from being very good. Pitch one, the starting flake with big layback and reachy traverse was the highlight. Take a couple of large cams for it!

Great climbing on good rock, with plenty of opportunity to protect the moves. Each of the two traverses adds some spice. The third "pitch" is a formality, but it's not as though you can avoid it. Highly recommended for a short multi-pitch adventure.
