This is the route that parallels Arachnid Traction to the left.

Jump Bat Crack is marred, however, by a low birch tree growing out of the cliff (try not to use it!), and a tangle of tree limbs growing down from the top of the crack at the very end of the route. This last growth of tree presents somewhat of a fun challenge as the climber must make a decision whether to climb up through, or under the branches. Either way will bring you to the top of the cliff.


This is the left of the two handcracks splitting the left end of the wall.


A standard rack with some doubles in the medium sizes.

I found the crux to be the last couple moves to the final tree branch at the top. The tree is "in", right? :-)
