Description

Batwings climbs the crack 15-20 feet right of Norma's book. The initial crack protects well and climbs easy, until you reach the horizontal crack. Place a cam in this crack and angle or traverse right. Aim for the crack just left of the roof. This crack takes hand jams like it was designes for them, and then turns vertical. It still takes the hand jams for a distance then thins out into 2 thin cracks. Take your pick, or use both and pop up onto the face. Find your moves and pick your protection well from this point as it is sparse.

Protection

2 ropes are needed for the rappel, unless you want to hike to the south of the formation for 2 1-rope rappels. The rack for this guy should be heavy on medium and small camming devices. A couple of long runners are needed also. Save a micro-cam (blue I believe) for the upper face.
