This is the obvious right-facing corner on the right side of Batman Rock. Belay on a pine-needle covered ledge about 10 m right of the start for Spaziergang.
P1: Climb the corner with good jams (5.8) and excellent pro to a roof; then traverse right under the roof on friction (5.8 PG or S). Belay above the roof after the traverse.
P2: Turn the next roof on the left, then join P2 of Spaziergang for the finish.
Right side of Batman Rock.
Standard rack is sufficient. An extra very small cam (Metolius 0 or 00) is helpful. P1 has many good mid-size nut placements.

The first 80 feet of this route provides good climbing with nice jams, stemming, and friction, and would be well worth it if the rest of the route was decent. Pro on P1 is great right up to the first roof, where it pretty much disappears. There are some horizontal cracks in the roof that might be protectable, but they're mostly flared.
The last piece before the traverse can be backed up (medium nut plus a 0.5 Camalot worked for me) and there's not really any danger of a ground fall...but pro failure on the traverse would result in a nasty swing into the corner.
