So i was looking to take off work tomorrow and drive down to check out Franklin. The forecast for today is 100% chance of rain. Tomorrow morning is looking at about 30% chance until noon. I'm pretty sure i know the answer to this question already, but since i don't like that answer i'm going to ask anyway. Should i just go to work, or does the supposed overhanging nature of the cliffs lend itself to any decent rainy day climbing?

I wouldn't say Franklin is particularly overhanging.

There are a few climbs with roofs on them. Trouble is, they are generally only midway up the climb so you'll still have to top out in the rain.

I wouldn't do it.
