Description

The Pronghorn is a free standing spire, about 75 yards south of the Shipyard rock. The spire is about 50 feet tall and appears to have about four routes on it going up the different sides. It stands off by more or less by itself, even though it is very close to the main South Seas climbing routes.

An intimidating spire to some. its a small summit that is well worth visiting. This formation is good for the strong minded 5.9 climber as most climbs on it are heady. There is a PG-13, R, and a Dennis Horning X route. Prairie Runner (5.9 R 3 bolts on fixed pin seems to be the most popular way up. ) Trophy is a 5.9 with 10 bolts it has a PG-13 rating and is also good if your looking for a little less stress.

Getting There

Turn right (south) at the South Seas sign-in register and follow the main trail for about 50 yards until it starts to peter out, then angle about 45 degrees left (southeast) and you will walk right by the spire. It's an easy hike, with very little elevation change.
