BETA PHOTO: Bat Masterson on left, Batman (crack) on right.
A system of intermittent edges cracks and seams lies just left of the unknown 5.9+ crack and corner listed on this site. Smaller and less secure holds and smaller and less frequent gear lead to the finish at the anchors as the routs converge. The crux was in the lower 1/3rd.
Toward the left edge of the South face of batline dome, about 2 meters left of a more distinct crack and corner system.
A few small nuts and cams, a little heads-up. There are chain anchor up top shared with the 5.9+ cracks to the right.

This route now has anchors directly above the pitch located 6 ft to the left of the anchors for the 5.9 crack route on the right.

Todd Swain calls this Bat Masterson. I would agree with Tony, the climb is harder than some of the other 5.9 climbs on Batline Cliff.

FWIW a buddy and I TR'd a line in between the unnamed 5.9 crack to the right and this route. We thought the climbing checked in at about 5.10+, feeling harder than the 10- on lead. Start as for the 10- and instead of trending left with obvious crack like holds, go straight up...fun moves using side-pulls and stemming to surmount the bulge.
