Description

A difficult one to onsight, the Left Prow climbs the scary, arete using a steep and committing start with an unobvious, tricky sequence. An early, strenuous crux leads to easier climbing on the face. Initially stiff, when you nail the sequence, the rating feels quite accurate. Very funky - A rewarding route.

Start on the flat block directly under the prow. Begin using the right facing sidepull and/or large edge system. Pull up and slightly left using the only usable features. Follow the arete to a right-side shallow pocket and finish up the face.

Location

The right-most line beginning on the arete.

Protection

Five bolts to chain and rings

The first 3 bolts climb on the left side and nearly under the prow, it then escapes to the face and climbs past two more bolts to its own independent, right side anchor. It stays off Robin entirely, but does not climb the prow proper after the third bolt. Aug 20, 2012

Just curious, does this route stay on the left side of the prow the whole way, or does it escape left onto the face and finish at the Robin anchors? Aug 20, 2012
