Description

Beautiful, left leaning crack that turns vertical and slightly overhanging halfway up. The route starts with a bouldery step into the seem between the Matterhorn and the Grade A boulder. Tight hands finishes with a bulge to the top.

Location

The route is the obvious west facing crack in-between the Matterhorn, Flathead and Grade A.

Protection

Medium Pro (.5-2). Set an anchor with medium pieces in the crack on top. Walk-off on the east side.
One of my favorites in the park and my proudest send as of writing this (just got it yesterday 12-2-17). Bats were definitely there pretty late into the summer this year too. Dec 3, 2017

Had a group climbing 4/10/2016. No bats that we could see.
Great crack lead climb, working the overhang takes a bit, but worth the work.

I'm not sure if the bats are seasonal, but we climbed it on 1/24/15 and there were no signs of bats. Jan 25, 2015

we just went to this route the first of september and this crack is completely filled with bats and the foot high pile of guano at the base. Not disgusting, kinda cool, but enough to keep you off the climb. are bats in this crack a yearly thing or just seasonal? Aug 31, 2014
