AJM and PMM head to Lumpy Ridge for a day of climbing. It's a 1.4-mile hike--at times, a scramble--to the base. We did the Batman and Robin Route (5.6) up Batman's Pinnacle in two pitches with three rappels and short downclimb. We were out about 6 hours. Note: this south-facing rock gets plenty of sun, so lather up on the sunscreen. PMM lead the climb in the Batman role, while AJM played Robin cleaning up his brother's line. Good placements and a fun climb, with especially fun vantages from the small top of the pinnacle. Enjoy near-constant views over the Estes Valley, Continental Divide and the top half of the Diamond face of Longs Peak. Each belay was a great perch.
