Daniel leading Top choice and approaching the crux...

Description 

Beautiful, left leaning crack that turns vertical and slightly overhanging halfway up. The route starts with a bouldery step into the seem between the Matterhorn and the Grade A boulder. Tight hands finishes with a bulge to the top.

Location 

The route is the obvious west facing crack in-between the Matterhorn, Flathead and Grade A.

Protection 

Medium Pro (.5-2). Set an anchor with medium pieces in the crack on top. Walk-off on the east side.

we just went to this route the first of september and this crack is completely filled with bats and the foot high pile of guano at the base. Not disgusting, kinda cool, but enough to keep you off the climb. are bats in this crack a yearly thing or just seasonal cause I was really looking forward to this climb?

I'm not sure if the bats are seasonal, but we climbed it on 1/24/15 and there were no signs of bats.
