Description [Suggest Change]

The crux is immediately off the ground traversing 10ft left or west under the ceiling to enter an 80ft finger crack. Crack is sustained (5-8) with a (5-9) mantle finish onto a large platform ledge. There is a second pitch up a inside corner facing left on the right side or east from the platform ledge. 50ft+ finish to summit. A 4ft loose block in the corner prevented me from completing this route to the top.

I was rope soloing. Some hang dogging was done during the lead. Did a follow up ascent without hang dogging it, after the climb was cleaned. It'll pump you up. Namesake represents the bow of a ship.

Location [Suggest Change]

It's the only protruding outside cornered box shaped wall with a finger crack up the center of it. Left or west central section of crag.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Trad rack with small to medium stoppers and there is at least one fixed piton at the beginning crux ceiling. There was a rappel anchor. I'll speculate it's still there in need of new slings. Now restricted to using non permanent protection and no, fixed anchors.
