Early morning sun on the prow.


This is a subarea of Lime Park (a.k.a. Lime Creek). It has at least 6 routes.

Getting There 

Two roads access the canyon, one on each side of the creek. The West road deadends just below The Prow. An improvised footbridge crosses the creek at the last pullout before the end of the road. Cross the footbridge and follow the climbers trail up the hill. The trail forks just under the prow. Take the left fork to access the Prow routes; the right fork leads you to the North Wall.

Daddy Didn't Need No Magnum 5.9+ 5c 17 VI E1 5a  CO : Eagle/Vail/Minturn/Red Clif... : ... : The Prow
Battle your way through the bush at the base. Climb easy rock foreplay to the third bolt, clip this, and you have the protection needed for the bulge ahead of you. Make 5.9+ moves for the next three bolts, and reach the climax of the climb at the anchor. As with all routes in the area, there is some loose rock left of the route. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
