Comments: A great finish to the climb is to rap or downclimb from the summit into the notch between Batman Pinnacle and Batman rock and finish to the top of Batman Rock via Summer Breeze. It is the very obvious finger crack that leads to the small pine. Then take the short hand crack to easier ground then on to the summit. No harder than 5.7-. I then take the descent route down to the base of Batman Rock and climb there before heading back to the backpacks. To get to the base of Batman Pinnacle pass ... more >>

Comments: Great route over all. Good pro and easy route finding to an airy summit.

Comments: Great jams all the way. Not as hard as other Lumpy 5.9s but still a lot of fun. Used a Camalot #'s 1, 2, and 3.

Comments: My favorite Lumpy 5.6. Solid hand jams all the way up. A better start is to start down and [right] in the chimney that leads to Arch Crack (5.6) Once to the top of the chimney follow the arching hand crack to the left where it joins the upper Tennis Shoe Tango. This will have to be broken into two pitches due to length and rope drag.

Comments: Did this route yesterday, it yielded no ice but made for a lot of fun drytooling 5.5 terrain. Can't wait to do it this spring with some ice.

Comments: Nice long second pitch. Used a lot of stoppers on the second pitch. Traversed over to the Cave for the Cave Exit Roof.

Comments: I followed on this one a few days ago and found the 5.10 start to be a bit easy while the 5.9 crack above was pumpy. The start is not well protected and may warrant a ground spot.

Comments: What a great 5.8. I think this climb, although short, deserves a three star rating. I find myself coming back to this one. Nice jamming with the rest spots spaced perfectly.

Comments: I did this route a few days ago and also found the 5.8 start to be a bit easy. The rest of the route made for a very moderate tour of the ridge. All the placements were there for a nice long pitch.

Comments: I lead the first pitch this weekend and found that the piton scars took nuts very well while leaving plenty of room for fingers. The roof was very straight forward but fun and all the holds were where they should be.

Comments: I thought this climb was at least a two star. A great finish to this climb instead of the easy scramble is to climb directly through the overhand into the horizontal cracks above known as The Mark of Zorro (5.9).

Comments: We started early and had the climb to ourselves. The climb had good protection and would make a great starter trad lead. I set the second belay on a dirty, vegetated ledge. We finished up and right from here with a short face section. This section had some long reaches but bomber holds.

Comments: I only did the climb to the 2 bolt anchor at about 70 feet up. The flaring crack had really thin fingers but great feet. Also found a few face holds for rest. Just remember that the tree is off limits.

Comments: The 5.8 hand crack variation on the 3rd picth was awesome. It was a great finish to a fun climb.

Comments: Ouch! I did this route just a few days ago and still can't get it out of my head. I climbed the route on lead and fought it way too much. There wasn't a lot of offwidth technique that worked on the crack. I still have scratches on my back from reaching deep into the crack only to realize that there was a hidden hold just inside.

Comments: I agree. It was a great climb with excellent rock. I did think that pro was more difficult to place on the first pitch than the second. I just let the third pitch run out.

Comments: The finger crack on the first third of the route is of the best quality. Bomber finger locks up to the crux. The crux was difficult and required just the right foot work. After the bulge the crack opens to hands. Makes a great TR for aspiring 5.10 climbers like myself.
