Really fun

Description 

The perfect introduction to roof climbing. Start in the back of the roof at big holds and climb out the right-facing rail feature. At the large opposing jugs (where the line intersects a perpendicular crack), either continue straight out to the fin and a big move to top out or cut right past a small pocket and opposing undercling.

Location 

Around the middle of the Bat Roof, look for the obvious right-facing rail feature. Starts in back of the roof and goes straight out.

Protection 

Pad for final moves.

The missing block doesn't seem to change much except to make the topout a bit trickier. I don't think it's any tougher grade-wise.

For extra pumpage, start on this problem and traverse the jugs all the way left to top out six feet right of the bat cave problem. Easy but very pumpy!
