Route is right of Misery in the Belfry, the small area above Spiral Staircase. Great route to be introduced to roof mixed climbing. Also at the end you climb around the curtain....


4 bolts, 2 screws.

Addendum: Per Erik Werner: as of 11/20/11, the 3rd bolt is ready to pull out of the rock.
I thought this route was called Bats, lots of fun nonetheless. Dec 5, 2004

As of 1/11/2015, the 3rd bolt has not been replaced and remains (potentially) hazardous. The bolt casing is visible, and both the bolt and casing wiggle - this is not apparent when climbing up from below as the bolt faces downward. As commented by Erik W. in 2011 - caution advised. Jan 12, 2015

This route is short but packs a lot of fun! Really good when the ice is fat, as the curtain is at least a body length wide and you get to do a sweet, pumpy traverse. Bolts seemed okay, but I didn't test any. Feb 4, 2015
