Atras is the left most of these two pitch wonders and perhaps the least attractive of the group. Atras is actually to the left of the descent gully used for the Necromancer Wall. The first pitch offered two decking opportunities via ledges that were hard to protect. The first pitch of Atras was athletic in that it offered a variety of climbing, off width, crack, face….some huffing and puffing for sure, but somewhat dirty as well. This route rarely sees any action.

the rock on the first pitch was pretty good, fun novel movement to be had. we didn't bother with the 2nd pitch, due to crunchy looking rock. there is also a nice bolted route to the right of Atras that goes at about 5.10a. 70m rope gets you to the ground off either route, just barely
With Dan Young and Carlos. It took good gear, I don't know where they had problems, but I had no problem finding good gear placement. It was a stout 5.8, but look when it was done and by whom. It required lots of various techniques, but I thought it was a fun, challenging route. Unlike the others on this wall. And the shade is gone at Necromancer by 12:30 so not so "icebox"
