Find this excellent slab climb a little left of center on Batman Rock: an attractive, bolted dike, left of a steep, reddish area of cliff. The crux is borderline overbolted, though you won't say while in the midst of it; the easier slab above is slightly run-out, though if you can lead the crux, you'll certainly have no problems.
Rappel from slings around a horn at 75 ft., or go left into a corner, ascend that, and traverse right or left to gain one of the lines that reaches the top (recommended: Clowntime is Over, on the right).
Half-dozen QDs, and perhaps webbing to reinforce the anchor.
The crux is well protected.
