Overhanging hand to finger crack. Crux is when crack slims down to fingers just before the bolted anchor. Possibly the best crack in Snow Canyon.


Walk down the trail for a few minutes until you see the right facing dihedral with varnish in the back of it (very obvious feature). That is the dihedral where Atomic Indian is located.


Cam fingers to 3.5 in should get you to the bolted anchor.

This is a great route that is quite moderate till the last 5 or 10 feet where it narrows to off-fingers and then fingers. Very solid rock - Indian Creek-esque! May 24, 2010

There is a spot near the middle you can sub. A .4 &or a .3 with long runners for a #3 ( in the tips crack in the corner) Oct 9, 2012
I climbed it with three #3, two #2, and one #1 BD camalots. I think it would've been better with four #3. Watch out for the bird in the crack, it'll follow you up the crack chirping the whole time. Sep 4, 2016
No need to walk down the trail to find this one. Go to the back of the parking lot behind the toilets and step onto a trail. There should be a sign right there that says to stay on the path. Don't listen to it. Go off the path here and walk up and left to the dihedral. Feb 6, 2017

Very easy until it tightens to thin hands, ring lock and then bomber fingers at the anchors. Feels 10c if you allow the key stem to push through the ring lock section.

Quite hard if you don’t have big hands, for me the bottom was slightly loose hands. Nov 20, 2018

Don't let the 5.11 grade scare you away. This is 5.10 95% of the way. It's only 5.11 at the last 2 moves before the chains. If you can't make those moves, you can easily pull on a cam to help you clip the chains. Jan 21, 2019
