Access Issue: Access is always an issue here. Details
Please do not litter and observe all regulations. We had to fight to regain access at one time, and we don't want to lose the privilege again. Local ethics and refuge regulations are that no bolting is permitted unless expressly authorized by the park. Leave the hammer and nails at home, no fixed gear please. Everything will go clean.
Description [Suggest Change]
This is a variation of Atomic Knee Drop. To traverses off AKD using a finger crack and finishes an independent slab line to the top. Trad line. IDK who the FA was. Definitely a fun variation.
Location [Suggest Change]
Climb first part of Atomic Knee Drop to the mini roof. Take the obvious finger crack right, traversing on small feet and hands/gear in finger crack. Traverse right to the big ledge. Step back left and take relatively blank slab to the top using the obvious black water streak for a good right hand or two. There is sketchy pro in a shallow crack on the slab a .75 cam worked nicely to protect the finishing move.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Small gear, medium cam and anchor gear
