Description

The climb starts in the notch between Batman Pinnacle and Batman Rock. It makes a great finish to Batman and Robin on Batman Pinnacle.

The best approach is to climb Batman and Robin on Batman Pinnacle and either rap or downclimb to the notch. The other approaches are long and difficult and range from following a faint trail from the base of Batman Pinnacle around the right side and scramble up to the notch or approach as for Batman Rock and follow the faint trail down under the east face until you can see the notch, then scramble up.

From the notch, the route starts in the beautiful, finger crack that leads to a small pine tree.

P1. Climb the finger crack to the small pine tree directly below a short hand crack (5.6). Although a short pitch, belay at the tree to reduce rope drag on the long second pitch.

P2. Climb the short hand crack and traverse left for about 15 feet before running the rope length (60m) to the summit on easy terrain.(5.7-) If you find yourself climbing harder than easy 5th class, you are off route.

This little gem would be a classic if it were longer and easier to get to.

Protection

Standard rack to 2.5 inches, Stoppers for first pitch.
