DescriptionThe arete and face to the left of Vanishing Flakes. A suitable alternative when San Ysidro is crowded.
Start by the Oak tree on the left-side of the arete. Climb up the left side and angle right, joining the right-side of the arete about 10 feet up. It is possible to place a Tri-Cam in a pocket before setting off on the runout face above. There is a hangerless Rawl about 15 feet higher. Continue on the runout face to the top, avoiding the crack that forms the top of Rockoco & Vanishing Flakes (although it is possible and quite appealing to step right and place gear).
First Ascentionists Note:
I did the FA of Puny Prow in 1980 when I was in graduate school at UCSB. I drilled the bolt from a free stance. I think it was a 3/8" Star Drive and the sleeve deformed; the original metal was a lame installation! I don't remember it being very runout.
