Description

The Bat Roof (or Bat Cave) is a highly featured roof with about half a dozen problems in the V1-V3 range and a few more difficult lines to the right. Dreamy jugs and pinches abound and make this an ideal spot to warm up and/or get acquainted with the Draw's style of climbing, as well as a popular hangout for moderate boulderers.

Getting There

Follow the main trail along the right side of the draw past the turnoff for The Island/Howard's Draw. Continue walking a couple hundred yards. Roof is to the right and slightly up the side of the draw, somewhat hidden by trees as you approach but fairly prominent once you are next to it. Past Egyptian/Floor Pie Roof and before Anorexic. Approach time approximately 10 minutes.
