This outstanding crag is one of the most popular Shelf Road cliffs outside of Cactus Cliff. The Menses Prows great variety of excellent routes and ample sun/shade options lure climbers of all abilities. The cliffs horse-shoe shape ensures excellent conditions, while also providing a more secluded ambience than other Shelf crags, even on busy weekends. Hard-men will be drawn to the short, powerful routes on the Bulge Wall, at the far left end of the crag, while beginners will be thrilled by the numerous sub-5.10 outings at the California Ethics Pinnacle.
Follow the trail from the old parking lot. Pass a signed trail to the Far Side, continuing on the right/straight fork of the trail. After several minutes, the trail comes to a well-signed T-intersection. Take the left fork (marked Menses Prow) and descend for 10 yds into the wash. Cross the wash and follow switchbacks up the steep slope to the Menses Prow. The trail ends below No Passion for Fasion at the right end of the cliff.
