After the crux traverse on "Riddler Right&quo...

This fairly major variation climbs high quality stone between Bat Crack and Hand Over Hand. A thin, somewhat runout, traverse moving left from Bat Crack gains an overlap which is followed out left to a logical point at which to pop over it. A juggy runout slab leads to another overlap that turns into an angling left-facing corner. When the corner turns back into a horizontal overlap, surmount it, slab climb up to the crag's main roof and belay. From here we moved left, under the roof, over to the final headwall on Hand Over Hand and topped out.


This is a variation linking Bat Crack to Hand Over Hand. Exit left from Bat Crack after 30 feet or so.


The traverse out of Bat Crack has a few thin moves from which you would not want to fall. The rest of the runouts are on juggy terrain. Bring a standard rack with a few extra shoulder-length runners.
