We have not seen any climbs listed on this boulder on Mountain Project or in the San Diego Climbing Guide and we set up three top rope climbs. I am sure they can be easily bouldered, but the boulder is pretty high and some really rough landings.

We suggest the crack on the south side be called Thanks Obama Crack 5.8, the face on the east side be called Trump's Wall 5.7, and the Arete on the southeast corner be called tiny hands 5.9. Access to the top form the west is easy and there are nested boulders for setting protection. Thanks Obama Crack starts on the southwest end and east and up across till it merges with the top of Tiny Hands.

Please let us know if you know of any other names for these climbs. Thanks

Getting There

This is the Bat Roof boulder. Bat Roof starts in the cave and finishes up the face.

Does it exit the cave and follow the crack along the red line?
