Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
The weather’s supposed to be good on Sunday so why not go climbing? If you haven’t been to Franklin before, it’s like a giant outdoor gym with routes from 5.7-5.12 at the main area and 5.9-5.14 at the Riverbend. We’ll probably stay at the main area unless everyone’s solid on 5.10, then we can head over to the Riverbend if you want.
The Franklin Tick List (Best Routes of Franklin According To Me, *’ed Routes Are Franklin Classics):
Castaways* – 5.8

NOTICE: If you sign up after 3:30 on Friday, I may not be able to get you gear. I will probably wait list those who need gear and sign up after then. Trip size will start at 5 and will increase as drivers sign up.
The weather is supposed to be partly sunny with a high of 63. Perfect sending weather! If for some reason the forecast changes to rain, we’ll head to Peak or RiseUp.
Trip Requirements: Able to tie in and belay a top rope. Able to climb 5.8 on top rope.
You provide: At least 1 liter of water. Lunch or money to get lunch on the way. Seasonally appropriate clothing – it could be a good bit colder than 63deg in the morning! Any gear you have (harness, shoes, belay device, chalk bag).
We provide: Ga$ money for drivers, the rest of the gear, a rope gun, transportation.
