Love that bathang! Looks like he's taking a go on Man Overboard though.

Great pic

It's a bit of a funny story - the climber meant to do whiptide, but didn't know it broke right so he ended up finishing on Man Overboard. I thought both use that hold though? Is it just that most finishing on Whip tide don't do the bat hang or is that hold not used?

i dont think i use that hold on whip tide... even if you did though your feet wouldnt go near it cause you just walk you feet along the vertical wall... if one really likes bat hangs it worth going out of your way for though :)

that hold is a bit too far out for whip tide - getting to the rest would take more energy than it's worth (that was my experience at least - at first I tried to do a bat hang to rest, but then found it was best to just keep heading out right).
