I found the crux to be near the top; a few meters before exiting the crack. There are good placements all the way up, but you have to look for them! I really liked this climb, but I found it harder than a standard 5.9 (as others have suggested). Lots of stemming involved.
Obvious crack just left of Batline. Hangers (and I think I remember chains) at the top (up and left) enable you to rap off this route.
Standard rack up to a #4 cam.

This route is the obvious crack to the left of Batline, but there is 1 route between Batline and this. The hardest moves are approaching the exit of the crack. From the crack to the anchors there is no gear, but the climbing is mellow compared to the rest of the route. Also, this route does not require as large of gear as it first appears.

Todd Swain calls this Bat Man. Chain anchors are directly above the crack. The route is harder than Batline.
