Grade Route

The most popular moderate climb at Frankenstein and likely in all of New Hampshire. The normal ascent line climbs up the center to a belay from bolts in the right hand cave. Second pitch climbs the steep central wall to bulges. Third pitch wanders up and left to trees or climbs a steep wall (WI4). Walk right (north) to walk off.
