Description

FRANKLIN'S TOWER 5.5 *** (105') M (7b)
In the middle of the West Face, begin about 10' right of "Slipknot!" and 10' Left of the obvious outer corner edge. Climb the lower 2/3rds of the face on excellent incut holds (5.4). At the "tower" climb the narrow rib right of the chimney to traverse left half way up to the excellent gear protected crux above. Continue to the 2 chain anchors on top. Although maybe hard for the grade seeming due to the exposure, this is an excellent easier yet sustained route, with a wide variety of climbing on excellent rock.

Location

In the middle of the West Face - begin 10' right of "Slipknot!"

Protection

Mixed - 7 bolts and a wide range of cams (large to medium small). Pair of chains on top.
