3 out of 5 stars Fun and Dirty

It's a pretty fun climb, a little akward in spots. Theres a nice ledge full of bat poo which was super spectacular. Not a lot of jamming necessary. Not sure why there are bolts either.

5 out of 5 stars Bat Crack

I though it was a superb climb. Didn't know was it was at the time but i looked at it and had it get on. I kept waiting for it to get hard (before I knew it was a 5.8) but it was just pure jug pulling fun the whole way. Little awkward getting over to the anchors.

4 out of 5 stars Hard for a 5.8

All I can say is akward and off-widthy, but it's all there

3 out of 5 stars bat crack

An odd crack. Weirdly difficult- but maybe thats just my lack of crack skills speaking.
