Awesome route, lots of fun!

Description 

Route is right of Misery in the Belfry, the small area above Spiral Staircase. Great route to be introduced to roof mixed climbing. Also at the end you climb around the curtain....

Protection 

4 bolts, 2 screws.

Addendum: Per Erik W: as of 11/20/11, the 3rd bolt is ready to pull out of the rock.

CONDITION REPORT 
As of 11/20/11, 3rd bolt is ready to pull out of the rock... looks ugly... and since it faces downward, I wouldn't push it.

I thought this route was called Bats, lots of fun nonetheless.
