nic is correct, TT starts lower and moves to the normal start of 'the prow'. Then after you gain 2 decent holds. TT's floats up and right on good holds and the prow goes left onto shitty holds. Contrived? probably. But you're climbing at the lake. lots of contrived things... and I think that the movement is pretty rad on the prow so its worth some effort. I would maybe start it the same as TT's if I was to try it again. Apr 28, 2011

So "The Prow" tops out more to the left then Tunder Tighs? Tunder Tighs doesn't use that slopey rail that Freaney moves to at the end of the video correct? Apr 28, 2011

P.S.S. This thing is hard. Desalvo said only Sandona did it and gave an estimation. My estimation is it may be slightly harder. maybe Nic can do it when he comes in and will tell us whats up... I have no idea how sandona dynoed to that slopey feature...yikes Apr 28, 2010

Also, we didn't try this, but from the start after you come up with ur left and right hand, instead of veering left for the prow, there is an easier line that could just go up and right to good sidepull edges to the top and be an easier moderate. Apr 28, 2010

scary landing for one spotter is an accurate report. They did a good job building up the landing but then there's just a drop off that kind comes into play later in the problem. This thing is super! Apparently Sandona dyno'd some how to the slopey bread loaf like feature from what Desalvo says and then goes up from there. I was able to find a more static way. I have video of my best try (last try) but am away with work, so i will upload it when i get back. my beta that you will see is from chris's last picture of me on the undercut edge and the good right hand, i bump my left hand all the way down and out to a pretty good sized undercling, then with foot still cammed in the start fall into the slopey loaf with right hand, bump to very top with right hand (that's the farthest I've linked it) I've done the other moves though from there so let me know if you have questions. This thing is really fun and 'thuggy'! Apr 28, 2010

Thanks Peter, do you know if he named it? Dec 3, 2009
This was done by Sandona back in 2004. It's around V8ish. Scary landing with one spotter. Dec 3, 2009
