This route starts just left of The Drawstring. Face climbing up the groove leads to an undercling. Climb harder (crux) face moves up and left to gain the upper groove. Easy moves up the groove or the rib on the left lead to the large right end of Bat Ledge. Choose one of several options above the ledge to the summit or rappel from the ledge.


Standard rack to 2.5".

A 3.5 or 4 fits nicely under the protruding flake. Makes the climb leadable for anybody. This is a fun route.
