Atlantis Wall Update - Echo Canyon
From Greg Tos via the TABVAR Facebook page:
This is the most popular zone in Echo Canyon. The 1:20 min walk is worth the effort.
This is the right side of the sector with the longest of the routes and some of the best.

A Spicy Elephant ext 13b, 42m

B - Burn to Shine 12d 35m
C - All You Can Eat 12c 25m
C' - All You Can Eat 11d 25m (Start on Atlantis, traverse left after fifth bolt, extra bolt there for the traverse)
C'' - All You Can Eat ext. proj.
D - Atlantis 12c 25m
D' - Atlantis ext. 45m open proj. 14?
E - Bone Thief 12c 25m
E' -Bone Thief ext 14a 45m
F - Buffet Royal ext.1 13c 45m (Note, 13c version traverses left at the top to join Atlantis. It makes sense when you are there)
F' - Buffet Royal ext.2 (Arron's original direct vision/finish) open proj. 14?
F" - Buffet Royal P1 12a 25m
G - Spicy Elephant 12c 25m

One very classy linkup I forgot to mark on the topo is between Bone Thief and Buffet Royal. You climb to the first anchor on BT (E) and then move over to BR. (F) - Royal Boner 13d 45m
This portion of wall has quiet few new additions and link ups and variations. All are of high quality. It can be a bit confusing but I hope this update will help.
