Description:

Start on the far L side of the panel from Jump Start. Do not use any of the holds on Jumpstart or the L variation of Jumpstart. Climb up past four bolts and pull around a corner and onto a ledge. Move up past three more bolts to a stance under a roof L of a huge slot. Pull out of the roof and onto a stance (pro helpful here to avoid the runout), move up a short thin face to anchors. Many people have complained of this route being height dependent, but at least a dozen people under 6 feet tall have sent the route, onsight, with no such complaints. Cowboy up, climbers... and always bring a couple of cams to Franklin!

Descent Options:

Rap/lower from anchors.

4 out of 5 stars undergraded....

Exciting route but more like 5.10 something, especially if not tall. [ I'm 5.9] Both cruxes reachy. Roof at top is hard, could do with another bolt as there is the potential for an upside down fall, or take something like a yellow alien or 0.4 camalot to place in a vertical crack...I'd grade this PG

5 out of 5 stars wow!

Great new route. Still some loose rock up there so keep your belayer on notice. Fun crux at the bottom and awesome exposure at the top. Keep your head and enjoy the exposure.
