Start at Batline but step out right and clip a bolt. Continue up and right on pockets and edges (the crux) to a rail. Clip the second bolt, trend right and then step left onto a left-leaning ramp. Continue left up the ramp to the top of a small pillar. Climb generally above the pillar to a bolt anchor.
The route starts in the same location as Batline but trends right and up. The rap from the anchors will work with a 50m rope.
Mixed route (two bolts) so take wires, small tri-cams, small cams and a dozen 24" slings. The anchor needs chains (about 5 links) to clip to the screw links.

We do not know the exact rating of the climb. It is some type of 5.10, perhaps a harder 5.10. Others will need to provide comments. One can start on Batline, clip the Batline bolt and then protect with gear and climb up and right to the top of Catwoman.

I think this is an excellent climb. Rating wise I would say it is more like 5.10+, I thought the bottom moves were pretty hard. The rest is pretty cruisy though.

Forget this Halle Berry business, this is the only real Catwoman.

If this is the climb that I did with DAS this past Sunday, then it's not only terrific, but also much harder than these ratings suggest. Did it with no beta at all, no idea what to expect, and just a desire to try what looked to be a very cool line. Took us both quite a number of swinging falls to figure out the moves to get through the second bolt, and those moves are very fun! Wish we'd taken pictures. Climbing above the second bolt is thoughtful, much easier, and very runout. Make sure you eye the hangers before you set off on this.
