Description 

Frankenstein is a great rarely climbed tower. Beware of loose/rotten rock. There are opportunities for additional routes on this tower, although I would be surprised if one ever gets put up.


Getting There 

"Take the left fork off Gemini Bridges road from the Little Valley. Frankenstein is about a quarter mile up that canyon. The fork is just before you reach The Gooney Bird."(Stolen from Sam's post of the Bride) Frankenstein is the obvious tower to the left of the Bride when looking at it from the road.
