Description 

Climb crumbly rock to the second bolt and surmount the ledge. Clip the 3rd bolt, climb through the crux to a positive hold, and clip the 4th bolt--beware of hitting the ledge if you fall between bolts 3 and 4. Climb easier rock to the anchor, with a short runout after the 5th bolt.


Location 

Franklin Contact Zone: Just Right of the first buttress (containing Potential Energy and Dynosaurus) you encounter in the Contact Zone. The route is on the river-facing wall heading up and right of the large roof above the dihedral.


Protection 

5 bolts and bolt anchor.
