Description

A dramatic, clean splitter through a roof? Solid (eventually) gear in good stone? Wait, are you sure we're still in Franklin?

You need to fight your way through some of the dirtiest rock in the area to access this climb, but it is worth it for those looking to bag a hard, no BS roof crack.

~30 feet of easy climbing up bad rock will take you to the base of the crack splitting the roof. The crux is establishing at the lip of the crack and gaining on the headwall, where the crack continues until 3 feet shy of the anchor bolts. Burly!

Location

Obvious roof ~200 feet left of Aqualung. Delicate climbing up chossy ledges will gain the base of the route. Climb the broken crack and corner to gain the obvious 10 foot splitter through the roof.

Protection

Fingers to hands, with extra emphasis in the .75-#3 range. Fat bolt anchors.
