DescriptionThe Prow is home to some of the longer climbs on the cliff and definitely some of the best moderate to hard free climbing. At about 450ft (4 to 5 pitches) the Prow isnt a big wall but it certainly can deliver exposure to rival the longer climbs found elsewhere.
Most folks first long adventure on the Prow is a trip up the popular 4 pitch 5.9 Recompense. This is one of the best multipitch routes in NH, recommended to all. Other full-length routes include Woman In Love (5.12) and the section's super-classic namesake The Prow (5.11d), a popular hard free climb or good practice clean aid route. If you are looking for super exposed and super hard look no further than Liquid Sky (5.13b) or Edge of the World (5.13c). There are a few classic routes that enjoy the exposure of the prow without having to commit as much. The second half of the Prow is accessible from the midway ledge on the left side of the cliff. These routes include a great first multipitch lead Upper Refuse (5.5), Black Lung (5.8) and The Book of Solemnity (5.10a). All 4 star climbs.
The Prow is the kind of cliff you summit feeling closer to the power that fuels you, whatever you wish to call it. For me the Prow helps give meaning to the cliffs name its a place we come to worship rock. It is my cathedral.
