Arapiles Syndrome* E3 5b
[New stake above Arapiles Syndrome, 2 kb]30m.

Rockfax Description
Reminiscent of Ocean Boulevard. Abseil directly, from the stake, to a ledge beneath a diagonal crack, 5m right of World in Action. Start up a short groove, then swing out left to reach the crack and follow it diagonally right to an overlap. Make two short staggered traverses rightwards again to gain an exit ledge. Belay on the ab rope. © ROCKFAX

Great pumpy climbing. Watch out for a large loose block on the second rightward traverse. We used the new abseil stake - place some gear on the way down to keep in and then walk along the ledge at the base to the belay. BUT there were chicks nearby on the top ledge (could be peregrines) so best left until after nesting season.

Mega! Deviously rounded in places and full on block hugging in others.
