Location 

Main Area: Upper Tier – Right Side: Extreme right end of wall, uphill from Rock Your World. Start at base of large boulder and climb beautiful orange colored slab.


Protection 

Sport: 3 bolts/anchors

Actually, the route is "Edge-U-Cate", and the area is the end of the Impact Zone. Coming soon: a guidebook that was actually written by someone who put up routes and built trails at Franklin, as well as being written with the landowners' knowledge and consent, something NO OTHER guidebook can claim... even the one written by the famous guy...

Stay tuned for more...
