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 fun, but it climbs similarly to its neighbors. Oct 19, 2015

There are new bolts, still old school spacing. Don't blow the 2nd clip. Mar 27, 2014

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-. Oct 15, 2008
