BETA PHOTO: Falling Bats- 11c.


A decent route with a great start, a tricky middle and an easy finish on suspect rock.

From the ledge, easy edges lead to a shouldery crux in a shallow, slightly overhanging dihedral. Pull onto the almost vertical middle section using good holds and grab a no-hands rest below the second crux. Traverse slightly right and then move back left to a good sidepull jug. Follow jugs over a final bulge and then enjoy generous flakes to the top.

First 2/3 of the route is not as sharp as the rest of the routes on this wall.


Starts on ledge just right of Picking Sumo's Nose.


Bolts and a two bolt anchor.
