Description

The Prow is the highest and farthest back part of the Cookbook, located on the far left hand wall (see Cookbook and Warfare area for more details).

The routes here are long, with massive expossure.

The Prow is a 55' technical face capped off by a gigantic 45' long headwall that sustains a 30-35 degree angle. While not the hardest climbing in the Cookbook, this area is certainly the most exposed.

As with the Warfare area, the terrain and the climbing should not be taken too lightly. The leads on The Prow are mentally challenging for the grades and one should remain mindful while moving around on the ledges.

All routes require a 60 to 70 meter rope.

All routes, except Double Infinity, share the same start up the face to reach the base of the prow.

Getting There

The Prow is tucked away in it's own little private spot, 150' to the west of the Warfare area.
From the Warfare area, walk left past the large boulder. Follow the catwalk ledge system for 150'. You will arrive at a nice flat platform directly beneath the overhang.
