Description 

The biggest feature on the prow is its arete. Sit down start on a horizontal flake with both hands and make 4 or so challening moves before an easier finish.

Protection 

crash pad would be nice.

Crux down low. Once you pull through the crux, it may not be worth finishing off. I seem to remember pullin' on some pretty thin fins that don't inspire a ton of confidence up high.

Jeremy is right, first time I tried it was a lay down start on the fins, but after trying it again today (9/6/10), it felt like it was ready to bust off! Use the match hand hold in the Dane picture.
