The climbing started right off the ground and was consistent almost the whole way up. The last 20-30 feet or so eased up and there was a good stance at the anchors. Fun cracks to put gear in, but it didn't strike me as a good beginner trad climb. Better as a climb for a 5.7 trad leader to stretch themselves on.


After following the trail between two rock faces (on the back side of Island in the Sky), you will come to a clearing. On the wall on the left you will see some bolts going up. About 20 feet to the right of this is a series of vertical cracks and features going up. This is the Bat's Meow.


There were enough cracks and features to only use small to medium cams on this climb, though a climber could find placements for large cams as well. Chain anchors at the top to rappel from.
