Description [Edit]

Stick clip a high first bolt and go up the steep roof on dark rock. Continue through a crack to horizontal. Cut left and go up an open book to the anchor. Pumpy, sharp, and reachy! There is also a new .12c to right of this route called Letting Go.

Location [Edit]

To right of Fang Shui and left of Letting Go. Look for a high first bolt to an overhanging crack.

Protection [Edit]

four bolts to anchor

As of October 2013, 4th bolt (I think) had a big chalked X on it, as well as several large holds around it. Unclear if the rock the bolt is in is actually bad, but seems likely. Nov 23, 2013

Really enjoyed this climb! Best "easier" Bat Cave route?

A link-up/variation splits off left after the 2nd bolt (or 3rd, depending which one your stick reaches), passing an independent 3rd bolt, linking into Fang Shui. Stay right/vertical for "Path" (I didn't know which 3rd bolt to climb to the 1st time.)

There aren't any issues with the 4th bolt as mentioned above, but I didn't look very hard though. Jun 15, 2015
