Description:

p. 1 start way right of the Atlantis corner, follow the line of least resistance up a slick black face. Expect 10-12 foot runouts on easy rock with sometimes marginal protection. Join the right-trending Atlantis corner near its top, pull around it (5.7) and romp up to the tree ledge. ***better climbing on Hotter than Hell or Cold Day in Hell will bring you to the same ledge where p. 2 begins*** p. 2 Locate a short steep handcrack, follow this past some flakes and into the perfect handcrack (5.8) to the obvious small but very sturdy tree 100 feet up, a beautiful ledge with great views. p. 3 Traverse left for an easy ten feet and trend up and right following the crack (small but good pro), head up to a forest and establish a belay.

5 out of 5 stars Nice Linkup From Hotter than Hell

Did the first pitch a number of years ago and then came back and linked into the last two pitches from Hotter Than Hell. Definately a nice way to do it. Combined the last two pitches.
