Description

Prowler rides the blunt buttress of black schist that forms the left edge of the cresting wave of Twitch Rock. With athletic, gym-style slaps between large slopers, prolific shade, and a trivial approach, this line has the potential to become the most popular 5.14 in Clear Creek Canyon. The route lacks the fingery crimps or stopper cruxes of many of the canyon's other hard lines, making this a great choice for a first 5.14 project. While the rock quality is not ideal, the line boasts sneaky good position, movement, and continuity--Clear Creek Power Endurance at its finest.

Big jugs lead to a good ledge below the third bolt. The hardest single move is a long reach to an incut, 1-pad edge at the fourth bolt, but the redpoint crux is linking the ensuing string of 10-or-so consecutive slaps and hooking moves to turn the lip of the curling wave.

Location

Prowler climbs the obvious prow right of Twitch.

Protection

6 bolts to a hidden 2-bolt anchor over the lip of the cliff (bring long draws for this to avoid shredding your rope).
