This is super fun!


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 for location.


7 bolts.

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

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

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
