Description 

The Atlantis Area covers the immensely popular Atlantis Wall, Minotaur Wall, Santa's Workshop, Tire Tread Wall and more. Not all of the formations get as crowded as Atlantis on a busy weekend so take the time to explore a little and you may just find a quiet area and some new favorites.

See the individual sub-area for more detailed information.

Getting There 

Approach from the end of the Ranger Station Road (customary) or from the parking area at the Real Hidden Valley. Either way involves easy hiking on level ground and no more than a 10-20 minute hike depending upon where you park.

Featured Route For Atlantis Area
Rock Climbing Photo: Nearing the top of Minotaur (5.7), Joshua Tree NP

Minotaur 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  California : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Minotaur Wall
Climbs the featured thin crack to a wide finish in a prominent v-slot. Good gear placements abound and the wide bit at the top is just pulling on creaky jugs. Downclimb to climber's left and take care, because while easy it's somewhat exposed. Perhaps best to lower or rap off for less-experienced and/or timid climbers.One star out of five (maybe). ...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
