Description

A great lead for a beginning tradster. This is a really good route for the grade. It climbs large dihedral with a perfect hand and finger crack up to two bolts on the right face of the dihedral. I have been told that one can exit left out the roof but I am pretty sure this is rarely done.

FA around 1984 by Bob Branscomb, Kristi Stouffer, Jack Kay and Linda Hall.

Location

One of the first routes you come to on the approach. This crack is in an obvious large dihedral with a huge featureless roof.

Protection

standard rack and two extra runners for the bolted anchor.

FA around 1984 by Bob Branscomb, Kristi Stouffer, Jack Kay and Linda Hall. We went left around the roof and put an anchor out there to rappel.

We named it because of a bat that flew out from under the overhang and hit me in the face when I was leading the first ascent. Oct 21, 2011

The climb ended around to the left for a long time, it was that way when I climbed it several times in the mid to late 1990s May 31, 2012
