This blank face in the center of the Gotham City wall is a technical nightmare. Fortunately (unfortunately?) the difficulties are brief. Start with easy climbing to a very high first bolt. At the second bolt make a dicey traverse left to a decent small crimp. From this an extremely hard high step, crank off of a sidepull lead to a good edge and the third bolt. Move back right to a pinchy hold and with poor feet make a long move up and right to a jug (the Joker's chin). Mantle into the corner system and enjoy an easy ride to the anchors. Used to be .12c in the old guide, upgraded to .12d in the 10th addition. A recent broken hold made sure it deserved the upgrade.


5 bolts to chains
