Description

A great climb. Almost all on limestone and great technical movement with good holds where you need them.

Location

From the top of the approach trail go right past the first major buttress a hundred yds or so to where the trail comes in close to the cliff again. This is the bolted route you literally stand in the trail to belay. It trends up and right.

One of my favorite climbs at Franklin. More sustained and technical than many of the other Franklin 5.11s, though pump is a factor here too. A little chossy down low. Oct 6, 2014

My first 5.11c... I had to fight for it, and I'm quite proud of the accomplishment.

The route is a little low angle at parts, and the crux is getting up to the roof, above a slab. Usually the kind of fall that would make me uncomfortable, but a couple of friends took big whippers there, and were fine.

Great route if you like techy, side-pulling face climbs, and aren't worried about falling into a (mild) slab. You may feel a bit run out when you hit the crux. Jun 29, 2013
