BETA PHOTO: Topo for Bob's Gone Batty

Description 

Use the start for Ben's Done Been (Bat Flake) and climb up to the third bolt. At the third bolt, transition left to the third bolt of Bob Right and head for the rings. Most people are taking the path of least resistance but when originally climbed, the line was meant to go over the roof, directly over the drill hole. In fact, the drill hole was used for a hold where it enters the roof on its upper side. The hold can be difficult to locate but it is there. Unless you like awkward moves, don't bother climbing it in this manner. The grade reflects the easier path.

Location 

Left side of the Left Wall. This is a combination of Bob Right and Bat Flake.

Protection 

Four bolts to ring anchors.
