  • Description 

    This is the first route you come to in the Bat Cave proper. It can be identified by a low, horizontal roof.

    Start with the 1st 2 bolts stick clipped.

    This satisfying route starts off with a slight boulder problem to get over the roof (V4ish). Clip the 3rd draw, & begin the business. The crux is about 9 moves on small, incut crimps, a sloper, & a big punch to a hueco. From the 5th bolt to the top is in the 5.12- range offering just enough resistance to potentially punt off.

    This is one of Dave Pegg's finest additions to the Western slope.

    Location 

    It is past the orange Samet routes in the Bat Cave.

    Protection 

    7 draws, including a long draw on the 4th.
