Great adventure climb on the dramatic prow with some interesting route finding. Stretch pitch 4 a rope length and easy class 4 to the top.

Thomas Kelly and I climbed a line in the Spring of 2007 just left of Napa Valley. We climbed the first 50ft of Napa then moved left.Good crack climbing and some scary face climbing. We then joined Napa at the final short finishing pitch.5.11a/b R. Anybody have any info. on past ascents?
