Description

Start on the slab below the right side of the Bat Cave. The face steepens to near vertical and offers some trickery at the 5th and 6th bolt. Continue up the engaging and blocky face to a final blank wall. Do some difficult moves here, first up, then moving right. Hit the small left facing corner and climb straight up to the anchors above.

Location

Starts on the slab just right of the first fixed lines to the Bat Cave. Its the first route right of the fixed rope. Follow unpainted Silver Fixe Hangers

Protection

13 bolts to a chain anchor with lowering biners

Great face climbing on good crimps! Felt like some holds might come off before too long though.
A 60m worked for us but it was close. Extended runners on the anchors helped, and then our last climber got a little length from cleaning the draws. Mar 30, 2015

This is a LONG pitch! A 60M rope may just get you down with rope stretch. Tie a knot in the end to be safe! Alternately the belayer can walk up the hill to gain a few feet or the climber could climb over to the upper belay ledge below the terraces. Feb 9, 2015
