Bat

5.9 PG13, Trad, 80 ft,  Avg: 3 from 1 vote
FA: unknown
Maryland > Rocks SP > Breakaway Wall

Description

Start up the gully for Centrifuge. Instead of escaping the roof right, jam straight through the roof. Follow the crack to a ledge and then finish up on the knobby face to the base of the Epitaph area.

Worth mentioning that the last twenty feet of this climb are very run-out. The face is slightly harder than the Breakaway finish (probably 5.7ish), and there is no gear for about 15 feet. Additionally, the face is dirty and the holds seem suspect due to lack of traffic. Be solid at the grade.

Location

Same start as Centrifuge.

Protection

Standard rack. #4 C4 protects the roof well.

If you set up a toprope, set a directional at the top of the flake.
