Description 

Frigtnight offers desperate climbing between good shakes. The technical crux comes just above the third bolt, involving big moves off very small crimps. However, two large lockoffs above and a tricky sequence just before the crux make the route quite pumpy. From the fifth bolt move left into the finish of Bela Lugosi. The rating given applies to this finish (the direct finish is much harder). All in all, Frightnight offers great moves, good position, and solid rock.

Location 

On the Batwall, just right of Bela Legosi.

Protection 

Bolts. A long runner can be placed on the fifth bolt to protect the longest runout on the climb, making it relatively safe. However, without this you may take a long fall onto the fourth bolt and the route will be quite scary.

Fright Night has been rebolted with new SS bolts, and project draws have been hung on it. Have at it! Thanks to Matt Spohn for the rebolting job!
