Welcome to Araps is all I can say.

I've found that almost regardless of the grade many routes there can have a sting in the tail and at times can feel much harder than the stipulated grade - even the easy ones (in fact especially the easy ones as you're not expecting it). The first time you lead the second pitch of Bard is a prime example. Easy climbing but down right f---ing terrifying if you're only climbing a few grades higher. Agamemnon is another. Super easy climbing but the position and direction you have to take makes you feel uncomfortable enough to start feeling likes it's much harder.

As for suggestions for well protected routes at Araps don't miss Muldoon (13), Lamplighter (14), Kaiser/Resignation (15) and Skylark (16) to name a few.
