Description

This is super fun!

Location

Access: there is a climber's trail just below Drill for the Thrill. Please follow this to the base of the crag, then traverse left. This means a couple of extra steps but will save the talus slope from erosion.

The start is just left and below the pillar in the middle of the Prow.

See the
The Prow topo. for location.

Protection

7 bolts.

A long fun climb with a short bit of 5.7 on the obvious head wall at 3/4 height. Unfortunately, the ridiculously wide spacing between bolts make this a 5.7 bolted for a 5.9 leader. If any of the hard routes were bolted like this there would be howls of protest. Jul 16, 2012

Agree with the above post, reachy bolts for a shorter leader. My partner thought this felt more like a 5.8 on lead as she is 5'2" and found a few of the bolts harder to clip. Nov 2, 2015

Just for the record, the first ascentionist is 5'2"! The clipping stances are all there. They were tested and re-tested before the bolts were placed. If the clips feel reachy, move around until you find that oh-so-comfy stance. As far as wide bolt spacing, this ain't the gym, pilgrim!!! Welcome to the world of rock climbing :) Have fun and be safe!!! Jul 13, 2017

Danny Mannix: please read the description! There are 7 bolts! Where are you getting your information that claims the route has 10 bolts? In any case, it is NOT OK to rebolt a line without the first ascentionist's permission. Jun 20, 2018
A great climb for the 5.10 climber who aspires to lead badly bolted 5.7. Check out my comment for Snail Trail where I have created a bolting distance equation of nearby routes--quite an eye opener. Jul 12, 2018

Dan Mannix, if you have nothing good to say why are you still here? Perhaps you want this to be a gym experience - with no cell service, poor road access, and less than confident skills on alpine style sport climbing you might want to move on to a different area already and stop your bellyaching.

Mr. Keagle, I have been in Lime for three weeks and plan to comment often for the next 3 months - get used to it - some of the routes here are bolted in a malevolent fashion, and I plan to meticulously list them - 2 good examples of "Lime Disease" are Bam and Tears. I have clipped at least 10,000 outdoor bolts in my career and climbed trad for 10 years before bolted lines reared their head. You must be used to fawning praise - this is a comment section in case you were unaware. People see that you are erasing my comments - this makes you look bad, not me. Dan Mannix

P.S. I have archived this comment and will keep replacing it if it is erased. Jul 13, 2018
