  • Description 

    This is the center-most route in the Bat Cave. It is easily identifiable by the big hueco at 17 feet.

    The route starts out with 3 bolts of pretty bouldery crimping to access the hueco. Pull over the roof via the corner to the right. Rest (left kneebar) then punch it through the last 2 bolts to the top. It is somewhat run out to gain the anchors. If you want to work it out & take a direct fall, Dave added a dogging bolt 4 feet left of the last bolt.

    This is a really great route in a beautiful, remote cave.


    Caped Crusader is right of Boy Wonder in the cave proper. It can be identified by the huge hueco 17 feet up.


    6 bolts. Extended draws after the hueco & on the last bolt help matters.
