Pull out of the cave on jugs and zip up on more great stone. It is a tad pumpy for the grade. The first two clips are shared with the route immediately left.


This is the right-most of three routes.


Half a dozen draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

Sweat and short, great work again by Richard, Mill Creek has turned into a legit climbing destination. Lots for climbs for trad leaders, sport or beginners, from 5.8s to 5.12+.

Prowler is a really fun climb, hard and power moves right off the ground, probably more toward 10c/d if you are not used to pulling overhangs. It's short but has a challenging middle traverse crux, and it's pumpy. Be sure to take your rests when you get them. So it could go in the middle-10c range when you connect all the moves.

I have watched two, 5.12 climbers miss the onsight on this climb, tricky until you figure it out. Aug 12, 2013

Stout, from start to finish. If you are short, it might be tough to hang the draw at the 4th (I think) bolt. Pumpy climbing to a hurried rockover. Pretty cool. Sep 28, 2015

By popular demand, this route now has an independent lower anchor. See Mill Creek Block page for details. May 28, 2016

This is an excellent 5 bolt route with tricky route finding. Not 60 ft, more like 45-50ft. Clipping the 4th bolt seems like the crux. It is placed right in the middle of the crux moves, with the 3rd bolt at or below your feet. Committing. I think this bolt should have placed 1'6" lower, considering the 3rd bolt is only 18 to 20 ft off the ground. Sep 19, 2018
