The Atoll is a small crag area just on the bank of the Deadman Gulch drainage/creek, a tenth of a mile in from the road. It has sharp rock on the prow routes. Sand & guano rests in some holds.

There are two fully-bolted, moderate climbs on the prow-type formation and a few partially-bolted or chopped (by FA) routes just to downstream.

It seems to get pretty nice sun, & the creek is nice!

Careful not to let your rope (or your partner) fall into the creek.

Getting There 

Park at the picnic area on the right (3.7 miles from the left turn onto CO Hwy 7 from Lyons) or nearby. Deadman Gulch is on the north side of the road. Follow the stream into the gulch for 5 minutes or less (in the streambed if the water is low, or on some ill-defined trails on the east bank). The Atoll will appear on the right-hand side in a sunny alcove.

Climb through a few ledges, ending up above the prow itself (this constitutes most of the length of the route). The crux is the thin, bulging left-face, which can easily be skipped by going further left and finishing the last few moves of Enola....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
