Comments: A torrent of bat shit raining down at the final bolts.

Apparently others have had better experiences. Maybe the bat activity is seasonal (I was there in late July), but I can't believe they didn't call this climb Bat Shit Crazy.

Comments: We found some fresh shit on the start of Blocks on 6/1/2013. Looked like dog shit, rather than from people. When we first got to the crag, I saw a woman by Doug's Roof, but she disappeared like a ghost when she saw us.

Comments: Best to use some nuts to set one arm of the TR anchor and the fixed staples for the other arm.
If you follow the line straight up the middle of this photo, I think the route is way harder than 5.4. Certainly harder than Blocks, to the right. There's one move on the finger crack, near that 45° flake that's tricky. Especially for shorties.
