Description 

This route is AWESOME. Super cool arete climbing, but it's a little hard to figure out where it's going because you have to free solo up easy rock for the first 30 feet. After that, 5 bolts lead up super fun moves to the top of the cliff where you can enjoy a fantastic view. Remember that this is an arete climb, so when you start climbing, head for the bolt on the left side of the tower (you won't see the other bolts from where you are). When you get to it, get on the arete and you'll see the bolts on the other side.

Location 

You can see this route on your left right as you're coming down the path. Continue to the bottom and head up the path up to the beginning where you see the name of the route with an arrow pointing up.

Protection 

5 bolts + anchor

Here you can see the name of the route, painted in red on the rock. This is pretty typical in the Frankenjura.
