Description

Aesthetic line, look for a baseball-sized pocket about 7' off the ground and a big horizontal hueco / edge about 4' higher and 2-3' right, and another similar feature 2-3' up and left. Big reaches, big holds. Fun top-out. Best to go for a left hand fingerlock above last good hueco / edge, and then right hand mantle to top out.

Jordan, you must be thinking of another route... Nothing really crimpy about this one and definitely no 'dead point.' This one is also known as "North Pockets" on Prow Rock. Check out the photos here: mountainproject.com/v/color… May 1, 2008
I can't quite tell from this description, but this sounds like a climb I recently did, but it definitely wasn't V0. I started at the far left side of the north face (the unchalked line on left of N. Face beta photo) and moved directly up, following a shallow vertical seam. Long reach up to a crimpy rail, left hand sidepull/pinch, then a deadpoint to the good hueco up and left, no mantel needed. Sounds pretty similar but I thoroughly scrubbed many of the dusty and unchalked holds so who knows? Anyway, all the problems on the Chain and Prow rocks are fun, tall lines ideal for warmup laps.
