Who knows how long ago this was climbed? This had a piece of tat hanging from the tree at the top when the "first" guys to do routes at Franklin got there.

Left of Limestoned about 15', there is a nice ledge-filled dihedral that makes a great beginner lead (despite a bit of loose rock in the middle). Finish with some slightly harder moves R around a small roof at the end- watch the loose block on the ledge to the right.

Descent Options:

Boulder up over small face and walk uphill to wall, go left to end of wall and walk back down hill to base (about 60').

4 out of 5 stars Christmas Eve at Franklin

Cold... brutally cold... ice hanging down and flling on us while we climbed in shoes too cold to really feel anything. Much more fun line in the summer... kudos to Mike Fisher for leading what was essentially a MI1 with trad gear.
