Description

Clearly the best line at the NNP, Batshit Crack is the most continuously sustained crack here. Don't be discouraged by the name- it's nowhere near as shitfilled as some at WR. It begins as moves requiring hand jams to a short section moving into a body-size flare that has less than ideal protection. Above, a steep hand crack section is probably the well-protected crux. 10-15' of 5.9 OW finishes the climb.

Liebacking is a good substitute for technique on this climb.

Location

Batshit Crack is the obvious crack in the left-facing corner at the tallest central part of the New New Place.

Protection

1 set cams up to a #4 camalot.
2-bolt anchor, reachable from the top.
