Description 

Missing the Dike (aka Two Dikes for Dinner) is located on Atlantis Slab. As you approach the slab, find an area that has several bolted lines ascending from a flat area near a trench in the rock. Scramble into the trench for the belay. Locate a left-angling line of old 1/4" bolts near a black dike (the first line of bolts directly right of a newer climb). Climb onto the slab from the trench and follow the line of bolts. The dike will become obvious and useful until it ends at the last 1/4" bolt where you have to use a rotten hold (the hold is about to break, use caution). Slab your way to a good two bolt anchor.

This is a typical South Platte climb with the usual manky 1/4" bolts. Well recommended, but please don't fall.

Protection 

Four bolts to the top. Three 1/4" bolts and one new 3/8" bolt near the crux.

This route is great- bring screamers and an attentive belayer-the bolts look a little ratty, the climbing is exciting for a 5.9 leader-.

There are new bolts, still old school spacing. Don't blow the 2nd clip.

This route is fun, but it climbs similarly to its neighbors.
