Sport line, put up 10-07. Still a little loose to first bolt then rock gets good. clip first bolt while holding hidden pocket, then enjoy a series of pockets, from small to buckets on your way up. two bolt anchor on top. Fun route. great winter route, the sun hits about 9:30 and warms up fast.


A 3 minute walk from the Atlantis parking! Down the old tunnel road, about 300 feet from the parking look right for the bolts going up the first outcropping of rock. It's the 3rd line you will come to.


7 bolts

Nice route with the thin move crux between bolts 2 and 3. Can be made as challenging as one likes: straddling the bolt line the hardest; hooking out left a tiny bit easier. Somewhat sporty, tho despite this, probably the best route on the Old Tunnel area.
