All climbers must use existing rappel stations for descent. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Start in first left facing overhung corner after coming through "tunnel" to enter the upper tier. Pull the arete once you reach the small roof (crux) then follow crack to the top. Gear belay at top and decend via Walk the Plank anchors.

Location 

Very first route you see after entering the upper tier. Sharp "nose" shaped arete followed by a 30' crack are distinguishing characteristics of Batman.

Protection 

small to medium cams, nuts, and even a brown tricam came in handy down low. Extend your slings so you dont suffer the same fate as the poor soul who lost their BD 3.5 camalot at the top of the route. Gear belay with a few medium cams and a nice boulder to sling with a 120cm sling.
