DescriptionThis route is on Atlantis Slab, pretty much near the center. There is a large block on the ground at the base that forms sort of a trough. This route begins slightly to the right. From below, it is apparent by a system of thin block/flakes that make up the slab in this section.
Climb straight up, following the path of least resistance. The rock sounds a bit hollow through here when you pound on it. Go straight up over a big, hatchet-faced flake of sorts onto a ledge. Fire straight up over several more ledges and slab climbing past a bolt and onward to the anchor. Rappel from a 2 or 3 bolt anchor.
It is a decent route, probably one to do once, but not a destination.
