Featured Route For The Cave Area
The Bat Flake (5.10d)

Bat Flake 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  CA : San Diego County : ... : The Cave Area
This route is on a separate boulder to the left of The Cave, and is characterized by a right arching flake. For the most part it is obscured by a large oak tree (ants?). A weird corner start finally gets one into the flake system itself. Deep fist jams and forearm cams are made before an exit move is made prior to the end of the crack with a face move or two to the top. Highly Recommended....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
