Located in the East Stronghold. 200-foot-high, south-facing dome on the right side of a canyon. Stronghold approaches don't get much easier than this one. Several good 1-2 pitch routes.

Getting There 

Take the right turn just past the cattleguard at the national forest boundary. Follow this dirt road for 0.6 miles to a parking area immediately south of the dome. Road is rough, but manageable with a moderate clearance 2WD vehicle.

There's great primitive camping right under the main wall of the Batline Dome. Nice fire pit, good rocks to sit on, nice shady spots for your tent and if you climb at owl rock or batline, there no more than a 5 minute approach to any of the climbs.

There are at least eight routes on the south facing portion of the rock. The routes are mixed so a combination of wires, small to medium cams, small tri-cams and 24" slings are useful. I have seen a short note on the area written by Todd Swain and will incorporate it to this web posting (he rates most of the routes 5.9 but there is grade and protection variation on the climbs). Left to right they are:

Dikohe 5.8
Batmobile 5.11b
Bat Masterson 5.9
Batman 5.9
Bat Girl 5.9
Batline 5.9
Catwoman 5.10/10+?
Extreme right unknown 5.9

Sorted and named the routes according to Todd Swain's page. Please let me know if corrections need to be made. Additionally if anyone knows the true route names and FAs I can update the listings.
