Description 

On Atlantis Slab. Follow the main trail to the left-center side of the slab. This route starts at the upper right end of the trench described for Missing the Dike. Look for a left angling seam/ramp and 4 newish bolts next to 1/4 studs. Step up and follow the seam/ramp for about 20 ft to the first bolt (couple of so-so stoppers possible half-way).Head up to bolt #2 then left past two more bolts and the crux to the ledge and anchors (shared with Missing the Dike). Watch out for loose rock on the ledge.

The guide books give this a R rating past the last bolt, but the fall looks clean, relatively short and not too bad since it's on a 3/8" bolt.

2-1/2 stars.

4 bolts4-6 runners plus something for the top; a few mid-range stoppers
