Access Issue: Private Property Details
There is a nearby private shooting range, while these routes aren't near the property line the road is, as is the parking. So just be aware and don't go exploring on the north side of the fence.
Description [Suggest Change]
Bat Corner ascends an obvious, red, left-facing corner. I haven't led this thing yet, since I haven't carried trad gear up there so far. Start with fingers and moves up through hands with some fun liebacking in the mix as well. The softness of the rock is not super inspiring for a leader, but it's a fun toprope or a possibe lead for those soft rock connoisseurs. There also appears to be a family of bats living in the crack about 3/4's of the way up. You can set up a toprope pretty easily after climbing Tesseract. Just climb past Tesseract's anchors, and you can walk along the ledge over to the cold shuts at the top of the route.

This seems like it would take C3s (maybe even nuts in a couple spots) up through hands. There are two cold shuts at the top for an anchor. I will likely replace these at some point unless someone beats me to it. They cold shuts appear solid enough, but they have been there for quite a while. Use them at your own risk. Again, the rock looks pretty soft. I wouldn't advise taking any big whips on whatever gear you choose to use if you lead it.
