An excellent new route on the Bat Wall. Epitaph opens with a rad problem ~V6 that involves catching sloping rails with marginal feet. The second crux offers long lock-offs off good crimps. A final slab with small edges protects the anchors. The three sections are separated by good rests. This climb is well worth the approach.

Starts with a shallow left hand pocket and right sloper.


This route starts on the upper right section of the of the Bat Wall. This climb can be approached by climbing up and past the second pitch of Superstition. A 2" cam can be used to protect a small run out. The climb starts on a large ledge.


5 bolts + anchors with rap rings. Stainless steel. A 70M rope will get you to the ground with rope stretch using the LOWER ANCHORS.

This route is awesome. The powerful moves and exposed position are well worth the effort to get up there. I hope it sees some more attention.
