Description 

This is the small formation sitting in front of the Atlantis Wall which is home to a handful of routes 5.7 - 5.10a. Nothing too exciting but sometimes less crowded than the Atlantis Wall proper.

Routes from left to right:

Mystic Knights of the Sea (5.9)
Divine Wind (5.10a TR)
Minotaur (5.7)
Fantasy of Light (5.10a)
Nittany Lion (5.10a)


Getting There 

Approach as for the main Atlantis Wall but walk a little further out into the narrow valley to reach the base of the wall.

Climbs the featured thin crack to a wide finish in a prominent v-slot. Good gear placements abound and the wide bit at the top is just pulling on creaky jugs. Downclimb to climber's left and take care, because while easy it's somewhat exposed. Perhaps best to lower or rap off for less-experienced and/or timid climbers.One star out of five (maybe). ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
