Description

Batman's Girdle is the longest climb on Batman Rock. It involves four to six pitches of traversing, ascending and even some quality downclimbing. The FA party did it in six pitches but we managed to do it in a long four pitches with a 60m rope. It may be best to do this on a less crowded day since BG crosses nearly every route on Batman. At one point, climbers on Hand Over Hand asked us if we were lost.... We decided to give BG two stars even though P1 isn't the best, the rest of BG is crossing or climbing two to three star routes. Plus,' it's just a cool way to tour Batman. It is helpful to know the basic routes on Batman to navigate this route.

P1. Climb P1 of Carpenter's Corner climbing out the left side of Coor's Roof 5.8+, traverse ten feet left and ten feet down to belay halfway up the route Spaziergang.

P2. Traverse straight left on good foot and hand grips for 40 ft then up left on runout (5.4?) knobs to the roof traverse on Hand Over Hand. continue by downclimbing HOH until 15 feet above the ground. This is a long 60m pitch.

P3. Now traverse Gobs of Blobs and continue all the way to the base of Hand Jive. Another full 60m.

P4. Finish by climbing the great last pitch of Hand Jive 5,9, the crux of the route.

Protection

Bring the average Lumpy rack with a few extra med to small sized gear. Stoppers, TCUs, etc.
