Description:

Fun little balancy route .. makes for a perfect warm-up. Watch out for the bear cave half-way up! (update) Follows major Flake which opens right but angles up left from Taco Time start, then Intercepts Atomic Cafe's crack (hence the name) and comes back right. Bomber holds everywhere, between the flake and the sub-vertical face; plenty of opp's for laybacks, stemming, & almost any other technique that comes to mind. Chimney? yep. Offwidth? It's in there somewhere. Finger crack? They're your fingers, go for it. You don't HAVE to do any of these, as variety is Interceptor's watchword, after FUN. Great warmup or satisfying beginner line.

4 out of 5 stars Interceptor

Good route really easy. Not sure that it is really any harder then Taco Time to be honest. Was glad to have gotten out and played with it though. Just another fun day of climbing in OK.
