Description

The Prow has some of the longest routes in the Dierkes Lake climbing area. This west-facing crag gets shade until 1pm or so. All routes are well bolted with fixed anchors. The Prow is well visited, but never crowded due to the number of routes and spacing between them. The holds on most routes are solid, but if you are slightly off route, you may encounter loose rock. Due to this and the height of the cliff, a helmet is advised. A 60 m rope works fine for all routes.

Getting There

Quite possibly one of the most picturesque and amazing settings around, The Prow sits on the large cliff band above Shoshone Falls. Begin at the Dierkes Lake parking area and follow the main climbing/hiking trail northward then eastward, crossing a small bridge. After another 200 feet, the trail descends and turns northward. The trail splits after another 200 feet with the main trail heading right (east) toward the Alcove and bouldering area. Take the left (north) trail as it contours westward. Another 0.25 miles or so on this trail will bring you close to the southwestern corner of The Prow. Follow the cairned trail up the small talus field to the base of the cliff. Total approach time from parking area is about 15 or so minutes.

All hardware on the Prow was rebolted between November 2016 and May 2017 and outfitted with 1/2" stainless steel bolts thanks to the Southern Idaho Climbing Coalition (SICC) and a generous grant from the Access Fund/American Alpine Club Anchor Replacement Initiative. Local and much-needed support came from Magic Valley Gear Exchange in Twin Falls. Enjoy! May 22, 2017
