This route is on Batman Pinnacle and begins approximately 100 yards to the right of the standard start of Batman and Robin
Pitch 1/5.9+ VS: look for a nice looking slab just left of a large, left-facing corner. Climb the slab and corner, getting gear when you can in the corner, and head straight up to crux cracks through a small bulge, small stoppers/RPs, then trend right to a nice, gravelly stance near a small tree under the large roof on the S.E. face of the pinnacle.
Pitch 2/5.10+ S: follow discontinous cracks heading towards the left side of the large roof, until you can crawl in to a leaning, chimney like feature, which turns into the large roof. Place a couple of good cams in the back and mantle up onto small edges where you can reach up and clip the lone bolt. Pull through a difficult section and run it out approx. 20' to a nice stance at the base of the pinnacle headwall, belay here. Finish up on Batman and Robin
or descend off the rappells on the left.
Jim B. and I led this ground up, onsight, without the bolt on the first ascent. Note: There is a loose flake a couple of feet to the right of the bolt on the 2nd pitch. It is easily avoided, just beware of it.
Standard rack, single set RPs.

I lead the the first pitch/plus as a link up to the 5.6 in 1998 by accident! After the flake to crack ran out, I was on thin slab to the bulge! I got half of a small Alien in that would not have held. I kept moving above (think your route went right to a belay) and then traversed left to get to the second pitch of the 5.6 I was looking for.
