The route goes up a right trending ramp, straight over a bulge and then generally up and a bit left to the anchor. The climbing is fun but the lack of protection will limit the ascents at the grade (we top roped the natural line and perhaps it is a little harder than 5.9--we climbed a more protected variation). We climbed it with double nines and one can go further up the ramp and cut back left and up to the chain anchor.


The route is located about 30 feet to the right of Batline. It starts on a right trending ramp.


The pro isn't very good at the crux, the bulge above the ramp. In fact, it would be nice if the route could have one or two bolts on this section so that one wouldn't deck on the ramp. Perhaps one can identify the FA party.
Although we didn't climb this section of rock, one should be able to climb the bottom of Catwoman and then continue up and right on gear to the anchor. This would provide a safer alternative to climb the natural line.
Bolts and top-anchors updated by CASA in 2017.

Totally agree this route is a bit bold.. as shown here in Kerry's Book going over the roof from the arching crack feature felt insecure and pro is thin. I climbed up crack line to right (start ~10ft) of arching crack feature and then traversed left (~20ft off deck) to rejoin route up to chain anchor, 5.9 (pro was a bit devious at roof)- bring gear to 3". For what is worth, we TR'd the original line up arching crack over roof and it felt more like 5.10-. Nov 30, 2009
