This is the giant overhang right by the ground about 15 feet right of the start to Spaziergang. The overhang is the crux, but the slab above has interesting moves all the way to the little tree. A couple of 5.8 or 5.9 moves when there are no "knobs".


The far right side of Batman Rock, about 30 feet right of Bat Crack and 15 feet right of Spaziergang. More than likely this has been climbed before.... It certainly deserves to be climbed some more....


Dark Night 'cause it would be lights out if you fell off leading.... I didn't notice much opportunity for gear. It's easy to TR from the little tree on Spaziergang (recommended). There is good gear by the tree if you don't wanna bother the tree, at least you can back it up.

Cool, did you get it ground-up?

Sorry, No. Didn't mean to imply that. Just on TR. The first moves felt harder than 10, but I didn't fall, and 10d usually feels pretty stiff up here. Still open for the lead, but it's probably X rated....
