Atlantis Area Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: A bit of bouldering can be found enroute to Atlant...
The Atlantis Area covers the immensely popular Atlantis Wall, Minotaur Wall, Santa's Workshop, Tire Tread Wall and more. Not all of the formations get as crowded as Atlantis on a busy weekend so take the time to explore a little and you may just find a quiet area and some new favorites.

Approach from the end of the Ranger Station Road (customary) or from the parking area at the Real Hidden Valley. Either way involves easy hiking on level ground and no more than a 10-20 minute hike depending upon where you park.
