Climb the upstream face just right of the Dynosaurus arete through the roof and into the dihedral above. Holds through the first couple bolts can be dirty. The face has easier climbing and leads to the crux at the roof. Once in the dihedral, the climbing is easy, though a little run-out to the anchors.


Franklin's Contact Zone - up the trail from the Parking Lot a few hundred feet. Route is just right of the Dynosaurus arete on an upstream facing face.


6 bolts and bolt anchors.

Certainly not a v6 or v7. That would put the route in the solid 12+ or 13- range. 11+ or 12- is fair -- about an honest v4 or hard v3. Jun 7, 2017

If you have 5.12 crimp strength you may enjoy this one-move-wonder. The crux probably goes at V6 or V7 (definitely harder than 5.11d), with the rest of the route coming in at low 5.10. I'm not bitter about not being able to pull the move. Not at all. Sep 23, 2014
