The Bride of Frankenstein is the most popular route at the Well-Dunn Wall. Highly manufactured, and totally overrated in the guidebook, this route is all about power endurance.
Start on two small crimps, and follow a line of sequential pockets up to an obvious pod about 15 feet up. Breifly shake out, and then push through the second half of the difficulties making harder and harder moves until you reach a hand jam under the roof. Pull the bulge, throw in a kneebar, and then crank out the 12b finish over another roof to the chains.
For some reason, this route is given a 13d grade. However, considering how much harder routes like Simply Read are, the difficulty of this route seem much closer to 13c's like Spray-A-Thon, or Fluff Boy. Irregardless of the grade, or manufacturing, this route is a blast, and definitely deserves all the attention it receives.
Just left of the bowl of this cave, The Bride of Frankenstein starts off two small crimps, and tackles a steep wall that's capped by a large roof.
Bolts, and two drop throughs for anchors.
