Oh Araps, give me your 19s, 20s, 21s!

Hey y'all,

I'm heading up to Araps with a gang intent on taking on the best that the mount has to offer between the merry grades of 19 and 21 and thought that I would dip into the well of combined knowledges to see what routes the people Out There thought have to/must be (don't argue) on the list.

So, suggestions/compulsions?

Judgement Day, 19 - awesome rising traverse.
Of course, Katchoong, 21, and right next to it A Taste of Honey 21 also.

I heard a whisper that a taste of honey had more sandbag in the grade than the whole of the Somme had in its trenches in 1916!

Sandbag? Hmmm maybe a tiny little bit. Certainly very committing! ;-)

5 fingered mary is the only 5 star route at the mount ... after you're through with Sabu's list, you can take on In Lieu and Stormalong.

@ 19, Tannin, Lemmington (both walls), Morfydd (Jamming)

On Kachoong and A Taste of Honey, I reckon:

ATOH is a tougher onsight.
Kachoong is a tougher redpoint.
ATOH is tougher to second.
The gear placement decisions are tougher on Kachoong.

ATOH Direct Start is considerably tougher than either of those climbs, it felt like 22 to me.

When I read "Lemmington (both walls)" I thought man langles must be seriously flexible. I mean, my stemming sucks at the best of times, but stemming onto D minor pinnacle to climb lemmington is a bit of an ask!!! [then i worked out what you were referring to]

I spent a moment wondering where the 2nd wall on Lemmington was ...

OK, I'm in:
19: Tannin, Judgement Day, Quo Vadis, Poppies (not very popular but I like it), The Wall of the Afternoon Sun, Lemmington (ignoring earlier comments), Rosy Shy.

20: Thunder Crack, Stranger's Eliminate, Dazed and Confused, Vanoise, Firedance (just noticed in the guide it's been downgraded; it seemed very easy for 20), Blue Hawaii, Little Thor.

21: The Wraith, Blyth Street, Auto Da Fe, Kachoong, Taste of Honey, The British Beat if you like thin steep slabs, New Image, Chinese Algebra, Comic Relief

Add Pearls Before Swine (20) to Sabu's list (you are evil).
Taste of Honey is better climbing than Kachoong.

I kind of thought that Rosy Shy and Poppies were one move wonder climbs. Wild Oats is a 19 in a similar vein. Not to say the routes aren't really good though!

Yeah Sabu, always happy to give a recommendation of something you;
a. Have not climbed (they'll probably have the guide book anyway)
b. As Tim said too scared to jump on yourself
And therefore;
c. should not be recommending
