About Atlantis (The Road Area):

Park in first pullout on right after tunnel. Scramble down and slightly right past orange paint, trash and an old car. Watch out for broken glass! Scramble is worth it. Some of QC's classic climbs are here (Giggling Marlin 5.9). Sport routes start at 5.7, so this is the perfect place for beginners to try their first lead (Mondo Freako and Bunny Slope). However, most of the climbs here are 5.10-5.12d. This steep canyon stays relatively cool even in the summer.
Approach: You can go straight down from the parking lot in the loose skree or head south and turn left by the old telephone pole and go down the mini canyon the left up the main canyon to the climbs which is much easier especially getting out to your car.
Approach Time: 5 - 10 minutes
Latitude, Longitude:
Access Issues: Take the trail to the west side of the Parking area instead of the steep trash filled scree route. This trail brings you past an old telephone pole and around under the metal pipe.
Rock Type: Volcanic
Type of Climbing: Sport
Sun Aspect: Afternoon Sun
