BETA PHOTO: Good Looking Bat Hooking A3
This incredible line follows the white streak up the center of this amazing blank face passing horizontal pin seams and finishing in water grooved limestone for the last 20í. This is an extremely blank face which the first 40' will require bat hooking between bolts and the occasional fixed piton. Towards the top of the climb there are more natural features/gear placements, where offset nuts with the use of a few small cams and a few pins or hooks placement will allow you to get to the anchor.
I truly hope that someone strong comes along and makes a free accent of this spectacular limestone overhanging wall, it could be free climbed around the 5.17b/c range.
Right up the center of the crazy blank face.
Hooks(2min), Pitons, standard rack, offset nut, Hammer
This line could be done clean(no hammer) still using hooks and with the use of a couple fixed pins.
This could also be top roped from a few small cedars, and would make for a good practice aid.
