DescriptionThe 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.
