Description & Vitals

Start several feet left of The Baroque Period.

Start with using the flake on the left and the face on the right to gain C1. On top of the flake, go straight up on big holds to a stance at C3. This next slightly harder section gets you moving up on some reachy good holds then a great lefty pocket to more big holds for 3 more clips to a spacious ledge. Jog left to clip C7, and then step right and continue straight up on a great flake then great edges/pockets and finally some sharp rock to the chains.

There is a concern about the actual spelling of this route name. This route name is taking from the Mel Gibson Movie Braveheart.

Per Getoutside:
This isn't a big deal, but the name of this route is spelled wrong. I guess it can be forgiven, because it sounds the way it is spelled here and in the book. However, it should be spelled Prima Nocte. Think about it, and yes, I am 100% sure.

There are a several:
Droit du seigneur[a] ('lord's right')
 jus primae noctis[b] ('right of the first night')
Prima Nocta
Prima Nocte.


This is in between The Baroque Period & Period Epic.
