Atomic Dust Buster


Atomic Dust Buster takes on a slightly overhanging face. Either boulder in from the right side to clip the first bolt or start down low. Technical and thin.


Located on the face to the left of the HUGE chockstone.


bolts + bolt anchor

My name is Michael Ritchey. I established DaKine, Atomic Dust Buster, and Jetstream along w/ a few others @ Bulo Point. Then began developing an area south of there w/ a downhill approach that has quite a bit of potential. Has there been any more development there?

This basically climbs more like a v1/2 boulder problem than a route, so perhaps the grade is closer to hard 5.10 or low end 5.11. Most of the holds are good incuts but the difficulty is sustained over the entire course of the route.

It's probably best and safest to just stick clip the first or second bolt and climb the face starting direct from below the first bolt.
