Description 

A super climb that involves extremely technical climbing, an explosive move up high, and a final exit into the "pod." Why it doesn't see more ascents is baffling, for it is one of the coolest climbs on the Bat Wall.
Starts just right of Dracula.

Location 

Bat Wall

Sport route. (NEW BOLTS have replaced the old rusty bolts.)

If anyone's interested in doing the work, let me know.
The local access fund rep has a bunch of bolts & hangers that were donated by ASCA for use at Broughton.
There are a few other anchors & bolts out there that are also a priority to replace.

For future reference, the bolts on this line (and the Dracula finish) have all been replaced with 1/2" bolts. Have at it with ease of mind.

TR'd this line yesterday, and WOW! I think it might get my vote for one of the best routes I've been on! Phenomenal movement, requires lots of power, crimping strength and excellent technique, as well as endurance, AND you get to finish off with the ever classic Dracula "pod" finish! Definitely my project for 2015!
