Amber feeling the radiation.


Overhanging hand to finger crack. Crux is when crack slims down to fingers just before the bolted anchor. Possibly the best crack in Snow Canyon.


Walk down the trail for a few minutes until you see the right facing dihedral with varnish in the back of it (very obvious feature). That is the dihedral where Atomic Indian is located.


Cam fingers to 3.5 in should get you to the bolted anchor.

This is a great route that is quite moderate till the last 5 or 10 feet where it narrows to off-fingers and then fingers. Very solid rock - Indian Creek-esque!
