Description

This climb is a must do. It has a slight overhang all the way up. That means no rest for your hands. The route is hard to top rope because of the slight overhang. I prefer to lead routes that overhang because I know I won't scrape down the wall if I fall. The crux is the section from the last bolt to the anchors.

Location

This climb is around the left corner of the Tinker Toys wall and faces north. The Green Monster Slab is directly to your left as you climb.

Protection

Bolted, Two chain anchor, 5 Quickdraws + 2 for the anchor.

Awesome route! Comparable to The Bulge. It's definitely tougher than any other 10b I've climbed, the crux is that it's overhung and relentless the full 30ft so you're already pumped by the time you reach the hardest moves right at the end. Get psyched and push through to the top! Jun 22, 2017
Made it to the 5th bolt and then it started pouring rain and crazy thunder so we left a locking carabiner there a ran for it. Im gonna go back for it when the storm passes, if you climb it before me please just leave it at the base of the climb. thanks Sep 15, 2015
Battleship was one of the first routes I have done sense moving to Utah, boy was it hard. the route follows a pattern, a couple ok hand holds to a wonderful jug to clip from and repeat. The tricky part is the top only because your forearms are tired at this point. Fully commit because if you have made it to the top you can finish the route. Happy sending. Jul 21, 2014

Tried to setup for TR, and it was pretty sketch. Used the anchors from Legos/Lincoln Logs to lower over the edge to setup the anchor. I wouldn't recommend trying to top rope it. Apr 17, 2014

At least from conversations I've had with people, this route is unanimously the most difficult 10.b ever. However, this last time I lead it, I stayed to the left using the bigger handholds on the side rather than trying to go straight up the line of bolts and found the route a lot more straight forward. I've also seen/heard of people who climb straight up it without using the holds on the left side, which I think would make the route a lot harder. Jun 14, 2011

Love this climb. the crux had me scratching my head for a little bit. but i guess that is what makes it so much fun. i thought it felt more like a 10c though. holds felt a little polished when i was on it. Jan 3, 2010

If your arms are in good shape this is a pretty straight forward route. If your out of shape like I was, leading it gets a lot harder. 10a if you're in shape cd if you're not. Aug 13, 2009

This route is a lot of fun. If it weren't overhung, it wouldn't be that hard, but the constant tension on your arms gets really pumpy really quick. I thought this climb was really similar to the Bulge except instead of being slopy it's got pretty big jugs. It's tricky though. Jun 20, 2009

I had always looked at this route and thought "No way". However, I was more than pleased when I finally got on it. The holds are huge and the top was exciting. This is a definite MUST DO! I am going to have to get the style points next time. Jun 9, 2009

Style points are awarded at the third bolt if you hang from the huge jug and let your feet dangle while you chalk up! Apr 25, 2008

This one caught us off guard a bit. We didn't know the rating but climbed it anyways. And I must say that we weren't let down. It had some fun moves and the crux to the top made us both scratch our heads a bit. It's a must do. Apr 24, 2008
