Description 

This climbs the striking wide crack visible from the Atlantis area direct from the toe of the formation. Thin slab moves are encountered getting into the crack which opens to a gaping 6-7" crack. At least one large piece would be helpful on this route. The belay requires more normal size gear in the 2-3" range. Easy descent off left.

Protection 

1 bolt (3/8"), 2 fp, pro to 6"

This route is super chossy above the bolt. Not much gear availiable getting to the crack either.
