Description

This is the best line on The Prow. A thin crack at the bottom with some stemming. After about 25 feet the rock leans back for easier climbing. Once one gets above the columns (~50'), the route becomes a bit more jumbled but everything is solid. Avoid obvious loose chunks. 

Location

Middle of the prow. It's sort of an alcove 2-3 ft deep due to columns on either side.

There is quite a bit of loose rock at the top of this route. It could use a good trundling before an unfortunate belayer gets tagged with a 20lb dinner plate.

Fun climb though. Mar 23, 2010

This climb is not pg-13, and there is not very much loose rock IMO. But hey, I climb at vantage ;) May 30, 2012

Just climb the first 50 feet. Above that the rock was jumbled and didn't seem to be worth climbing it. Webbing for rap anchor Feb 29, 2016

This was a very fun and chill route, especially the fun stems in the beginning. I don't think this is PG-13, and I'm a pretty new trad leader. It's a relatively short route, and takes good gear from med-large cams and nuts. Yes, there are large loose rocks at the top, but that's no different than most crags. As of 6/19/16 there is a cluster of slings (2 ok slings, 1 rotten) at the top to rap from. If you were to replace/add material, you'd probably need about 6-8 feet (rough guess). You could also build an anchor, bring up your buddy, then scramble out the top of the cliff and circle around climber's left. Jun 20, 2016

Fun, easy, a little jumbled. Some jams mixed with stemming and some other weird moves. Grovel your way to the top by any means necessary. There are some basketball sized boulders sitting right below the belay stance, but don't seem super dangerous to me; just watch your step. As of 11/12/2017 there are two okay-looking slings and a 6mm cord wrapped around the boulder with a few biners for rapping. Thanks to everyone who has donated gear and hardware to make this crag accessible! Nov 13, 2017
