Description Suggest change

This amazingly blank and exposed section of rock heads roughly straight up from the anchor where Crucifix and The Bat finish. Climb roughly 50-60' of some intensely tenuous friction to easier ground above. The improbable climbing is very well protected except one move near the 2nd to the last bolt. A couple of the bolts are older, or have bizarre hangers, but will probably do the job. This route was originally graded 11b in the Tahquitz guidebook, but I've heard rumor others think it's harder as well...

Location Suggest change

Approach via the Bat Crack and Crucifix or The Bat. Finish by moving left toward The Vampire. Walk off via the friction descent.

Protection Suggest change

Roughly 8 bolts, 1-3" gear for an anchor in the arch above.
