BETA PHOTO: The Bat Flake (5.10d)
This route is on a separate boulder to the left of The Cave, and is characterized by a right arching flake. For the most part it is obscured by a large oak tree (ants?). A weird corner start finally gets one into the flake system itself. Deep fist jams and forearm cams are made before an exit move is made prior to the end of the crack with a face move or two to the top. Highly Recommended.

It might be better described as a classic 5.10c tips layback start gets one into the flake system above.

I didn't feel the start was any harder than 5.8 or 5.9, but the flake above is burly as hell. I need to go back with tape to make the painful wide fist jams tolerable enough to finish the route. Then again, maybe this is a finger/hand size thing? I have small hands and skinny fingers...

To protect the pendulumn at the start, climb up the tree and put in a #2 camalot as a directional.
Make sure to tape up for this one!!

starts off great but slowly expands into heinous small offwidth/barely too big for hands. bring the #3 and #4 for that last part.
