Description

This striking and powerful line is one the best on the Bat wall. Containing power, balance, and finesse this route is a masterpiece. The opening moves are the hardest but upper moves still pack a punch. Begin up a very steep start below the remenants of a massive old beehive. This hive was removed long ago to reveal several very nice sharp incuts. (Route is also known a B-line or Beeline due to this) Continue up through a series of changing corners up to a huge roof. Traverse the roof and pull the lip on the left side. There are nice chain anchors just above the roof on a ledge.

The route is well bolted and was solely a sport climb up until a few years ago when several locals did the Retro-trad ascent. No bolts were removed but the entire route was done on gear. A trad ascent of the route is a spicy endeavor and should probably be rehearsed on TR or on bolts first.
