Not surprisingly, The Prow, is the pointed intersection of the two canyons of Paradise Forks. There are lots of good, long routes at The Prow and it's popular with climbers. During the summer season, it's mostly sunny in the morning, but in the shade later in the day, at least the side facing the Sine Wall.
The Prow Area is south along the same side of the canyon that contains Pillow Wall, at the intersection of the two canyons.

Mayflower is located on the right side of the Prow area, in the second to the last big right-facing corner (left of Fool's Game). I think this is the best 5.9 route at The Forks! First climb a short pillar with a finger crack in it (shared with Fool's Game) to gain a big shelf. Move left, place some gear, and make a big stretch across to an arete on the left. Climb the blocky holds on the arete (don't fall!) to gain the big right-facing corner above. Beautiful hand-sized jamming above takes you ...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
