Description Suggest change

The slab that resides immediately below the starts of climbs such as Hotter Than Hell, Tranquility and Atlantis.

At least five, short ( 50 ft, or so) climbs, fairly easily toproped, the furthest left climb (Brimstone) is frequently used as a first pitch to Hotter Than Hell.

Getting There Suggest change

Same approach as for "Inferno-Atlantis" area,  i.e. Hotter Than Hell / Tranquility Slab. Repeated here for reference:

A long pretty trail curves through boulders to get you to the far end of the cliff for this area...Pick up the trail (hiking trail, yellow blazes) just after leaving the upper (the Hotel's) parking lot turn left follow it for a while as it descends past the first few tees of the golf course. If the trees permit, you will see the south buttress getting closer. The trail now starts to climb through the trees as it swings around the South Buttress. After a short climb, the trail makes an abrupt 90-degree turn to the left (There's a yellow "left elbow" blaze on a boulder.) , look for a small cairn that marks where the climber's trail branches off to the right. [If you get to a 15-20ft high boulder on the right side of the trail you've gone a bit too far, if you get to where the hiking trail actually descends slightly you've gone 100+/-yds too far.]  Take the climbers path, steeply, up to the base of Corinthian Slab and Hotter than Hell.  To get to the routes Atlantis and Inferno walk right along the base of Corinthian Slab and then scramble up it's left side
