Crankenstein, like Silver Streak, is also among the better routes at French's. It's a bit steeper and a lot pumpier but the rock is quite good and skin-friendly, so do a few laps!

It's really easy to set up a TR on this route by climbing Silver Streak to the left and then traversing 10ft. over to the anchors of Crankenstein.


Just right of Silver Streak, towards the bottom of the dome.

The rest jug 2/3 up this route is a time bomb. Look out below!

At least we'll have a new 5.12! ;)

Anchors have been replaced with 1/2" bolts and Rap Rings as of 10/19/14. Thanks to the ASCA for the hardware.
