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.


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.
