Description:

Batman start is just to the right of Happy Feet. The lower chimney used to be covered with a black grime. But is clean now thanks to the help of the Bomba (Fire Brigade). Climb up the short wall then further an offwidth/chimney crack on large holds. A layback move (or tight squeeze) to the right gets you to another chimney section and the anchor chains.

3 out of 5 stars not bad

Lots of holds but quite overhanging. The layback move requires some guts - the last bolt is down below somewhere...
