Arapiles, Oh Arapiles (DWS)*** 7a+ s0

Rockfax Description
9m. Just exquisite; a classy line indeed. This terrific line offers all those little niceties - an easy approach, a solid top-out, and nowhere too high. Low in the grade. From the iron-clad ledges on the right, traverse across leftwards to the slight ramp. From here, hard side-pull moves deliver you to an impasse on two small crimps - and a final, rather exciting dyno. You will be entirely forgiven for a sneaky peak down the line from the top, to check out your finishing hold! © ROCKFAX

Just missed the top crimp first go then just about sent it the next. Powerful.

Third go. Felt soft. I used an intermediate crimp at the top. Dyno would probably feel harder - fair play to those who Dyno! Inspecting the holds from above helps!

2nd go, really nice bouldery crimpyness
BenNorman - Solo RP - 15/Jul/13

Classic little bouldery thing, awesome blind crimps up the steep wall, probably a V5/6 boulder problem above good water, saw plenty of spashdowns.
