Dynamic and fun. Easier once you know where the holds are. Start about 5 feet left of No Go Crack or about 12 left of Balcony Center. Move up to the roof and try to find the fingertip edges above it. Finishes up the small right facing corner just left of the Balcony's left edge.

One of my favorites at BM. A couple of teenagers told me they made the FA in 2004 calling it .10d. The name originates from the presence of an irate, hissing bat in the large flair on No Go Crack.

There's a fun leap from the first fingertip ledge above the roof to a better ledge about 3 feet higher, then use the sidepull to reach the balcony just right of the detached boulder.
