BETA PHOTO: Pulling the bulge at the start of Atropine.


short one or two move wonder, after the first bolt this is a 5.8

Alternate start aka "Atropine Direct"
Start to the left of the last two bolts, pull off a right hand on the bottom of the bulge to hit a left hand on the bulge and hit a bucket over the bulge, continue straight up to end just to the left of the anchors. Either stick clip the first bolt (because you can't reach it) or hang on till the second.

most climb the line starting under the first bolt going up over the bulge.


route farthest to the right.


3 bolts to cold shuts

Two move wonder it is. I think I used every muscle to its max for the direct start till I could sink two fingers in a hole then it was easy going.
