On the inside corner near Batman.

Climb the inside corner up a slab to a roof. The crux is pulling up over the roof. This route is very leadable (standard rack) and takes gear quite well. The holds at the crux are quite polished. Jul 19, 2006

Great lead climb, but not for the novice 5.8 leader. Up to the roof takes small nuts. I placed a #1 Camalot under the roof and a #3 at the roof, though a #4 might have been better. Aliens and smaller camalots will sow up the remainder. I set my anchors up in advance using medium size hexes and an orange alien. Enjoy! Jul 15, 2007

This route is actually about 30 feet downriver from Batman. It is not the corner directly next to Batman, but the next one downstream. Jun 15, 2008
I thought it was not worthy of the number of stars it recieved. Compared to the climbs at sentinel that only get one star(Lost Ego only gets one star - worthy of at least 3 - likewise for sentinel and yosemite crack).

The gear in general is intermitent. The crux is a bit tricky to protect. It takes large cams, but they are a bit dodgey (uneven cam distritubution in greasy pods). Below are good placements, but they won't keep you from breaking an ankle.

Go over to the minnesota strip or sentinel for better crack climbing to lead IMO.

pulling the roof is the distinct crux and if you don't have any jamming abilities and try to layback the slopy/greasy corners of the crack it can go from 5.8 to 5.hard quick. I made a couple laps on TR and from the first to the last time I got it quickly dialed in and 5.8 did seem very appropriate. Fun route and super easy TR set up. I slung a tree and used a #2 bd c4 right by the lip of the top out. Oct 18, 2014

Good for leading with lots of options for pro. Put a 3.5 cam to protect the roof. Hand jammies would be helpful too as the few hand jams to turn the roof are tough on bare skin. Jul 20, 2018
