Description

This has straightforward climbing with the crux near the 3rd bolt when moving through the prow's face. Watch out for the guano near the crux (it may alter the route).

Location

This is the leftmost route on the prow formation. It starts just a few feet away from Ol' St. Joe. Lower / rap with rope drag, or walk-off to the left and follow a trail back to the stream.

Protection

5 bolts leading to a pair of anchor-bolts (shared with Ol' St. Joe). The anchor bolts are on the horizontal surface atop the formation, and they create significant rope drag.

(It is PG-13 only because the first bolt is way off the deck.)

Finally got around to climbing this last week. The lower part was swarming with bees and the upper part was covered in guano (maybe? There was some black tar looking stuff in most of the cracks). Two bolts on top that an anchor could be built on, but I found it easier just to walk off. One of the bolt hangers looks pretty dated. Not really worth going out of the way for. Aug 31, 2017

A yellow Alien or similar piece protects the opening moves in the absence of the chopped first bolt. May 31, 2012
