4 out of 5 stars Batwings

One of the more challenging 5.8's I have climbed anywhere I suppose, and I have been climbing full time for many years. It was hot as hell. Avoid in the sun, you be shocked at how reflective this wall can be, I only did it to avoid all the folks on the shady routes on a Sat. The early crux move is very well protected, a .4 C4 horizontal. The dihedral is a pleasure. When it peters out, pro becomes a luxury. A .5" mastercam was critical in a pod before you hit 35' of slab run out. Straight up scares the hell out of you!....just traverse left, then back right following well defined, but not absolute, features. Very good route, one of the best if not the best for the grade at the City.

5 out of 5 stars Long and varied.

Really fun with a bit of run on easier terrain. Good gear and stellar climbing.

3 out of 5 stars _

Probably not a great route for the 5.8 leader - some spaced out gear at the top (mostly small nuts)

5 out of 5 stars none

Fallowed Kim Miller up this great line and cleaned all two pieces of pro he shoved in about mid route, what a bad ass. I plan on leading this in the summer of 08'
