Prow Finish

5.8 R, Trad, 100 ft,  Avg: 2 from 2 votes
FA: unknown
Colorado > Boulder > Eldorado Canyon SP > Bastille > Bastille - N Face
Access Issue: Seasonal Closures Details


From the top of NW Corner, move up to the top of the sloping belay ledge. Wander up the prow above looking for pro and occasionally finding it. Expect some runouts and sub-optimal placements, do not expect any chalk. Belay on top of the Bastille. This is a great direct finish for Northwest Corner.


Start is 3-4 pitches up the Bastille on the ledge that serves as a belay for Outer Space, Northwest Corner, Hair City, etc. The route is to the right of Outer Face and finishes at the top of the Bastille.

Walk off to the south and downclimb to the Fowler Trail, then down the steep trail along the west side of the Bastille to the road.


Standard rack to a #3 (blue) Camalot. No fixed gear or anchors.
