Description Suggest change

This face has aesthetic slabs and the lowest angled climbing at Java Dome. The climbs can take most or all of a rope length. Rappels will likely require 2 ropes.

It can be quite warm here during the hottest times of the year. It can be quite pleasant during the colder, sunny times.

The bolting is somewhat sparse in sections, so have your slab skills up to speed. Eds. Note that the bolts & anchors have mostly been updated.

This was a reorganization suggested by a MP.com user.

Getting There Suggest change

Approach as for Bali Dome.

From Denver, go West on US Hwy 285, go South (left) on Foxton Rd, this Ts at the South Platte River, head East (left) to South Platte, then it curves South, go 3 miles. There is a prominent, large boulder across the South Platte River just North of the parking area. Park where legal. 2 drainages can be hiked up. The North one has Atlantis Slab a short way up. Choose the South drainage. Hike 20 minutes or so. Find the South face. Scramble up and around some boulders to find this route on the right side of the South face.
