The left-most climb on the main face of the wall, The Prow is pretty steep for a .10a trad route, but most of the holds are pretty bomber.

Start on a slab with two bolts before attaining the ledge that the main face towers over. It is wise to use long slings on these two bolts - or to unclip the first bolt once past the difficult move - because you'll feel the rope drag up top.

After the ledge, there's a .4" or .5" cam placement to protect moves on diagnol ramps/cracks below the first bolt. At the first bolt, the climbing gets steep as you pull up a discontinuous crack system on the blunt arete. Continue up this crack system as it gets less steep and leans to the right then power up to the finish.


Three bolts and gear to 3".

I'm 'pretty sure' you can walk around to the left to setup a top rope. There are three bolts up top for an anchor, though you should also bring slings long enough to get the rope over the side of the cliff (~15').

Need 2 ropes to toprope.
