Carl goes Batty.

Description 

This one will drive you bonkers! Batty is the line right in the middle of the slabby, black wall left of the main pains in the asses that provide the longer thrills and chills at The Asylum.

Be prepared to handle some very small holds on a black slab that is much steeper than it looks. The beginning five ten climber will be introduced to one pad monos, finger cutting crimps, and teeny-weenie-freaky features that are both slopey and positive. Curse all you want, the holds don't get better until after the last bolt.

Staying on this thing is a bitch. You'll need crazy core strength as you creep up one crank at a time. Many a local has been frustrated by the start, middle and end of this short ass-kicking route. If the word 'sandbagged' comes to mind don't worry or fret...this route is stiff for the grade.

Location 

Left hand side of The Asylum.

Protection 

6 quickdraws. Freak out when you see the last hanger...it looks like something Sir Edumud Hillary banged into the wall when he was nailing your mother.
