Description

I think this is the best sport lead at Minnehaha, and one of the best 10d's in the area. It is also quite a safe lead; unusual for Minne. There used to be a scary runout to the chains, but a bolt has been added since Marty's book came out.

The Prow requires some long moves to good crimps and has jugs when you need them to clip. The crux is between the second and third bolt. First bolt is sort of high, so pay attention.

Location

The Prow is on the Secondary Face. Go around the main face, cross the hollow, and 100 ft. to the west you'll find the Secondary Face, which holds five 11-ish bolted routes and five or six good gear climbs.
On the far right side is an obvious right leaning hand crack, Back Tree Crack (5.7). The Prow is the blocky, steep arete immediately to the left.

Protection

3 bolts to a two bolt anchor. no chains, easy walk off.
