The most striking of the Bear Canyon buttresses, The Prow is also the most proud. Home to the classic Ignition and the area's test piece, 8 Seconds, this crag has some of the area's better lines.

This wall faces up canyon and is shady nearly all day long.

Getting There 

After crossing the log, follow the trail towards the cliffs, break right at the fork and follow the trail around the backside of the next formation. This is the backside of the Batman and Robin Slab.
