The entire area consists of 4 sections; Eastern Atlantis, Central Atlantis, Upper Atlantis and Western/Outer Atlantis. With close to 170+ established problems and the farthest problem in Western Atlantis being no more than a 5 minute walk from the Eastern side, Atlantis is the most condensed and established bouldering area in all of Tram. From lowball choss problems, gritty and grainy rock reminiscent of central Joshua Tree, to perfectly cut overhanging aretes, slabs, crimp lines and slopers galore, there’s a little bit of something for everyone and every style (even little kids!).
The area has a lot more pests than I’ve noticed in other places around Tram. Specifically: spiders, ants and tons of mosquitoes. Probably due to lack of significant traffic and what appears to be a small stream bed (water bearing toward the end of Winter/early Spring time).
Shading varies for most of the area depending on time of year. Some problems get shade all day (Anthony’s Boulder) where some only get morning shade during Summer (half the Black Manta Boulder), and some gets spurts of shade and sun all day (Ares Boulder). Toward Fall/Winter, the majority of the area stays shaded throughout the day, with open areas providing sunny relief from the cold. Shading is noted per boulder for the first half of the year going into Summer.
Props and love to my brothers and sisters who've helped establish the area: Anthony Lagunay (Laggy), Chasen Sugimoto, Gavin Lively, Ran Agregado, Nigel Napoles and Christina Miramontes; making this a collaborative effort between Sender One SNA and The Factory/H18.
My comment from the main Tramway homepage:
"Since I no longer live in CA, I'm going to post up all the development I've done in the last 5 years. Speaking with James March and the Miramontes's, I'm torn between having rTm include the area in his next Tram guide vs March's advice to keeping it secret. There are pro's and con's for both sides. That said I'll post information here (names, tentative grades, partial topos) but will not post directions.
Please be advised: State Rangers know of the area and, due to the unwanted potential impact and concerns w.r.t hiking, crash pads, etc, have strongly encouraged very VERY small groups of people at any point going toward and beyond that direction. I've been allowed to go because I climb alone 90% of the time (i.e. little to no impact) for which they have record of. Suggested are small groups of no more than 2-3 people, 5 pads max.
If you have any questions, please feel free to hit me up. RtM/Christina and ChasenSugimoto (youtube) are also knowledgeable of the area."
