The Fairy Cave Climbing Areas
Visiting climbers have commented that the Batman wall is peculiar because of the overhangs that require a lot of upper body strength while not requiring precision footwork. The rock formations with its chimneys and pillars are quite unique too. Several of the climbs are ‘un-gym’ 3D like climbs, requiring climbers to know what is around or behind them.

This wall is climbable in any conditions. There is a row of stalactite that keeps both rain and sun off the wall. Grades at Batman Wall go from 6A to 7C. There are roof climbs under this wall with a minimum grade 7B.
