Approach


Drive up the Mt. Scott road to the summit parking lot. Park in the parking lot on the north side. Walk back down the mountain road for about 75 yards (count 25 guardrail posts from the top). The trail(?) scrambles down a ramp to the right (east) for 30 ft, then switches to the left and scrambles down another 50 ft to the bottom of the wall. Note the picture below for the route.

Route Description


Start in a right-facing corner for about 15 feet until reaching a thin crack. Follow the crack until it ends on easier ground. Pro is scarce until reaching the crack. The crack takes small cams or nuts. Finish at a large boulder on a ledge where you can throw a long runner around for belay. Click to enlarge photo below. Atomic Knee Drop: Route #2.
