Description

This route is located on the Atlantis Slab. It is toward the right side of the slab, just as a rocky, bushy little hill meets the slab. It is visually apparent by a flaring, bottoming crack that starts from the ground and peters out after about 30 feet into a smooth slab.

Jam up the awkward, bottoming crack until it fades into a smooth, steep slab. Straight up on thin, friable flakes and smearing, past several old bolt holes to the anchors. Fun climbing that is best TR'd, though it could maybe be lead with the "removable bolts" that are kind of hard to find these days.

Protection

Best done as a TR. It originally had some bolts on the slab above the crack, but they are gone.

Per Jay Eggleston: the 5 bolts have been replaced.

This now has five modern bolts, but it is still best to top rope if you are not used to 5.11 slabs. I found lots of friable holds. The crux seemed like it was near the third and fourth bolts. Oct 31, 2015

This was a good route. I think Fowler did the first ascent. I could be wrong. Nov 7, 2010
