You walk across private land to enter this area. The landowner has been tolerant so long as we don't disturb his land or his cattle. To keep a good relationship with him it is extremely important that climbers don't mess with grassing cattle, and that ALL GATES STAY AS THEY ARE FOUND. Also, the large gate on the north side of the parking area MUST NOT BE BLOCKED IN ANY WAY; the farmer regularly uses this gate as he drives a truck pulling a large trailer, so the road leading to said gate MUST STAY CLEAR by least 40 feet on all sides, including the road perpendicular to it (running east-west). If the parking area is full, drive past the bridge and park on the next pullout (not far), and NEVER BY THE GATE.
Please be respectful and keep this access open to climbers. Use posted photos for this area to familiarize yourself with where parking is and is not allowed. Access to all gates must remain available to a truck and trailer. Parking in any way that restricts access to the gates north of the highway will jeopardize access for climbing.
This is the north side of the gully that separates The Prow from the rest of the cliff band. This is separated from Mine The Gap by a saddle that allows access to the cliff top. It has shade all day save for a couple hours in the afternoon where the sun peaks into the gully. Nothing but crazy chert pulling so far, but there seems to be lots of potential here. More to come!
*LOOSE ROCK WARNING** When approaching the prow from the approach trail, head up the drainage that meets an obvious gully scramble, straight up. If you've reached The Coop you've gone too far. Climb the right side of the gully for the most stable rock. Routes are on the east side of the gully on the obvious glassy, chert featured black limestone.
