BETA PHOTO: Taurus Route 5.8
Near the right side of the central part of Atlantis Wall, look for a wide chimney (Unwiped Butt, 5.6). The Labyrinth is the first crack to the left of the Chimney -- about 6' to the left. Average climbing down low leads to some fun hand jamming up high.
Standard rack to hand size. Long slings may be useful for setting anchor on top.

This is the last crack before the chimney on the right side of Atlantis Wall and a good climb. Protection to 2.5 inches.

Fun route - I found this to have a few more exciting moments than Solar or Men - the two routes that bring a lot of folks over to this wall. Cool ledge to belay your second from.

Took my first fall on gear near the top of this route (a #.5 camalot in a shallow crack...it held!)
A fun route, much like the other short routes on this wall, but the crack narrows, flares, and becomes shallow at the top. I believe that the crux is just before the last move.

This climb absolutely eats gear, especially mid-sized nuts! Even though I found myself on the edge of my comfort zone a few times at the top, it was really reassuring to know that you can get bomber gear just about anywhere you want. So for someone looking looking to push it from 7s to 8s, this is great climb to tick off.
