Description 

Bat Crack has a bouldery direct start that seems about 10b or c, and you won't get gear in until you're past the hard part.
To keep the 5.9 grade, traverse in fro the right on the big ledge. Bring a 3" cam for the lead and be prepared for a somewhat difficult placement as you start up the crack. A big nut slots really well here.
The runout that gives Bat Crack a PG rating comes near the top as the crack disappears, but is no harder than 5.7.

Location 

The first crack to the right of Dihedral and Ron's Climb on the main face.

Protection 

Tricky pro with a runout on easier moves.
