Description 

Climb dusty and crumbly rock up a chimney to the third bolt. Watch out for a loose flake on the right wall. Continue up the face on great rock, using good crimps to the crux below the small roof. After the crux, pull the easier roof to the anchors. This route shares a couple holds with Dynosaurus, but could share several holds if you stay farther to the right on the low-to-mid face.

Location 

Franklin Contact Zone--the next cliff face up the trail from the parking lot wall. On the front face of the first prominent buttress in the Contact Zone, between two arete climbs, Potential Energy to climber's left and Dynosaurus to climber's right.

Protection 

8 bolts, 2-bolt anchor.
