Moment of Clarity

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Moment of Clarity

Michael Fisher, bolting ground up onsite on aid, fighting for the last bolt before a complete white-out and wind chills in the teens forced him to bail while bolting Franklin's newest hard line, A Moment of Clarity (5.11+/-). Some wanker would come back during the following days to steal the gear abandoned in the storm, forcing Mike to simply apply top anchors and leave most of the loose rock on the route.

Roof Crack

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Roof Crack

This is the big roof crack that seems to have escaped being climbed until now. The crux is moving over the lip with a good #1 for gear. The gear in the roof is a #.75. Anything larger seems to take up the only jams.

Carrie placing #3 Unknown 5.9 @ Franklin

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Carrie placing #3 Unknown 5.9 @ Franklin

Carrie leading the Unknown 5.9 to the left of castaways (starting on the big block). placing what I believe is her first piece of pro ever while on lead. It was a bomber #3 BD. I later placed my first two cams on TR and hope to lead this as an easy first mixed route on my next trip down.

breaking my sport lead cherry...

Average Rating = 2.00/5 breaking my sport lead cherry...

Here I am, preparing to fall off of my first (fairly) hard sport route, Decompression Sickness (5.10b). Only one fall for the route though, so I felt pretty good. Thanks to Ben for the awesome catch.

Finishing the lead on a rainy day.

Average Rating = 3.50/5 Finishing the lead on a rainy day.

Alan at Franklin on a 65 foot 5.9. You can't see the rain, but it poured on and off all day. Some walls, as you see, stayed moderately dry. Photo by Tom Knull, who we mercilessly hung up on a neighboring anchor for about an hour.

Sticky_Fingers at 2nd Clip

Average Rating = 2.89/5 Sticky_Fingers at 2nd Clip

Dang I love this route, 11b. Here I am clipping the second bolt. The start looks kinda spooky cuz of the wall behind you, but the holds are crazy big. A little higher up the climb bows out (overhangs), but then it comes back. The main crux is at the 2nd bolt from top--think of a mirror image of the crux on Z-Slash at Great Falls, MD and you're set. Photo was taken on the ledge coming out from the tunnel by my friend Alex.

Me at Franklin

Average Rating = 3.12/5 Me at Franklin

One of my favorite climbs at Franklin, but this area can get crowded when there are people on more than one or two climbing through the tunnel.
