The mail-slot hold that is about 3 feet straight up the face from the first bolt seen on this photo (which is the second bolt) contained a sleeping bat. It's right where the face meets the roof. I just happened to put my hand right next to the bat, not onto it, thus avoiding a bite, I guess. Kinda strange, it was lying down wedged in there, face out, staring at me. Guess they don't always sleep hanging upside down. FYI.

The overhanging shaded face of the Nordwand. Steeper than it looks. Block Party on the right (seperate block) and Secret Agent Man on the arete and left face.
