Description

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

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

Small gear, medium cam and anchor gear

Nice route with some fun moves, but if you fall while leading the middle slabby section you will probably hit the Pile Driver ledge.

One should consider this a "no fall" zone until you get a piece in the black water-stained crack on the right. May 31, 2012
