Climb the thinner face holds (not the arete itself) just to the right of the ship's prow arete. Once you get your feet up on the face you'll have this one in the bag.


A pad is nice for this hardpacked flat landing.

I think the generally accepted order (left to right) is:

Ship's Prow, V0+.
Ship's Prow Right, V1, maybe a bit harder.
Ship's Prow Direct, V6-7, if it looks like a hold, it's not "on".
Finger Ripper, V3.
Ship's Prow Standard, V3, soft for the grade.
Curving Crack, V-fun. Sep 8, 2015

If Ship's Prow Standard is V2, then this is not V1. Friends and I each finished Ship's Prow Standard in 2 attempts, but this shut all of us down. Sep 6, 2015
I think this one is named, according to the NCCC guide, "Ship's Prow*** V2" (#58, p.22, Cross, C. & B. Scott, Horsetooth Reservoir Bouldering Guide Select ) This would be the 1st to the right of the arete itself.

MP may be missing some routes & photos? There seems to be some general dissent in regards to the names of the climbs on this rock... any clarifying info from folks "in the know"? Dec 14, 2010

Is this problem supposed to be in between Finger Ripper and the Ship's Prow arete? Jun 26, 2007
I don't know what Skip's trying to pull, but this picture as well as the one of the Talent Scout Undercling are not of the routes they're said to be! This photo shows Craig finishing the Gill Reach, a great route, but not the route described. I know this is the web, but I wish everybody could be honest with they're photos/facts. Jan 8, 2002
