John from Santa Barbara crusing up Vorpal Sword
This route is on the left side of the Atlantis wall and is the slightly left-slanting crack with a distinctive diamond-shaped chockstone near the top. This climb should be on the list of the 5.8 leader or anyone else who is in this neck of the woods. Fun climbing, but as always "wish it were longer"!
For this route you will want a set of stoppers and gear to 2.5". The route will protect well with gear to 1" and the anchor will require up to 2.5"

One of the better climbs at this very popular wall; two stars out of five.
The name of this route is a reference to Jabberwocky

Agreed with the other post that Vorpal Sword is a fun route... a "must do" while others are on the more popular routes in the area. Well-protected route.
I might be off on the star-rating system on this site, but I think it deserves 3 out of 4 stars.

Indeed, many will find this a fun route for the grade. Two stars out of four.

While you're over here, hit up Galumphing as well, you won't be disappointed. Both Jabberwocke references.

It's been a few years, but I remember a disturbingly loose/flexing hold up high...might be wise to pro up even if you're well below your limit. Fun pitch.
