Description

Prospector is located near the middle of the Ironside wall, not far past the large boulders on the trail. Start below the distinctive triangular overhang.

Scamper up to the first bolt, then get established at the lip of the overhang to make the second clip. Crank up and over the lip, then past five more bolts to the anchors. Large handholds throughout.

Protection

7 bolts to the anchor.

My rule for climbing vegetation is if you can hit it on the way down, you can use it on the way up. That said, using the tree isn't really helpful on this particular climb.

Clearly I'm in the minority, but I thought this was one of the best sport 10a's I've done anywhere. Jul 13, 2010

This climb has some trick moves at the roof but every hold is there. I believe the tree is off Jul 9, 2007
