4 bolts and anchors. Some folks like to place a #1 camalot to protect the runout where the last bolt was chopped by the FA.

Decent climb if you're in the area. Some long moves required.

4 out of 5 stars Good introduction route to 10s at Franklin

An easy, but long way to the first bolt. After that, all is well. Good climb for the grade. Climbed it twice in an hour....to retrieve gear. Hah.

4 out of 5 stars Good Quality Route

This was a nice route. About 50 feet or so, had one hard move and the rest was good holds.
