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 feet to the first bolt (couple of so-so stoppers possible halfway). 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 guidebooks 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

The newest guidebook does not give this an "R" rating. I did not see places for nuts, but I saw places for small cams both before the 1st and 2nd bolts. The crux felt like it was near the last bolt.
