Comments: OK, the directions were a fail on my part. My apologies to all who went north from Llano. Send all bills to me via MP.

Comments: I agree with Tony's comments concerning - I didn't have much trouble with the lower crux, but the top is more sequency than my tired old self could handle. All the holds are there, so the solid .11 climber shouldn't have much trouble with this. That being said - why all the bolts? It seems pretty protectable throughout most of the climb.

Comments: Fairly straight-forward, but I found the gear to be a bit manky. I don't know the area that well, but be prepared to throw in some smaller stuff in horizontal, flaring cracks up top that never feels super comfortable.

The top is still quite dirty. Seems that the route hasn't seen much traffic as there is a nice patina of lichen covering the the last 20' or so before the roof.

You will find the anchor at a tree up and around left of the roof. Currently it consists of webbing and some rap rin... more >>

Comments: Better than advertised. I think that Percious may not have gotten his route right given the 10d rating and the manufactured hold comment. A couple of cams for the bottom and the crack after the 1st bolt make this a little less sporty.

Comments: Actually, if you toss your rope to the left (east) then it is a single rap - 70 m definitely gets you down, not certain about 60 though. The descent is fairly straightforward; the rap puts you at the base of Bat Rock so it should be fairly straightforward getting down.

Comments: This line has a more traditional feel to it, so those used to placing gear shouldn't feel too intimidated by it (if this was a route in Lumpy, it would likely be 9). The bottom is fairly slick at this point, but the flake is pretty featured and provides bomber hands.
