To the right of Atras is an exceptional face climb on some of the best sandstone at RR. Cassandra's comment on Atras led me to be curious about this one. The movement is fun and the climbing thought provoking.
Just to the right of Atras at one of the many descent steps from the top of Necromancer Wall. The climb will be obvious.
Although this route is equipped with seven (?) well positioned bolts, it climbs more like a trad line. It does seem possible to supplement with a few pieces of gear. Two bolts with rappel rings make up the anchor at the top.

This route's been in existence as long as I've been in Vegas and then some, the previous anchor was getting rusted as hell and thus got replaced last year with stainless ASCA rings+brand new bolts. No gear's needed other than draws, a #9 stopper can be placed but it's in the way of a good hold, so probably better to avoid placing it. There are some wide stems and cool moves this baby-cost me a pair of pants to flash it, ended up flashing my belayer, too. Worthwhile if you're in the area. Single rope gets you down.

This route's name should be "The Best 10a Face Climb in Red Rocks".
