Description Suggest change

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.

Getting There Suggest change

The Prow Area is south along the same side of the canyon that contains Pillow Wall, at the intersection of the two canyons.
