This climbs the right side of the huge prow above Quaker State. Once on the prow, negotiate extremely steep terrain for about 25' before backing off on the angle for some pleasure cruising. Anytime there are climbers on the prow, people on the ground should be aware of the possibility of loose rock or dropped gear.

Climb Quaker State to the end of the crack system where it steps right onto the face. Start veering right toward the roof system beneath the prow. Look for the obviuos stance beneath the roof with a 1" horizontal crack at its lip. Pull the big roof and work up and right for 20' to acquire a large horizontal crack with jugs. Work this slightly left, then up to a good stance with easy terrain access to your right. At this point you could break off right and escape the air show up the edge of the prow but don't deprive yourself of the grand finale. Climb up and left onto the prows edge and follow fun moves up the flake/crack system to the top.

Over the top edge, towards the tip of the prow there is a hole/crevice that takes a 3" and 1" cam. Sling both on a rope end or a couple 48's to belay.


Climb Quaker State, then up the right side of the prow.


Typical full rack plus a few extra smaller cam sizes. Extra slings are useful.

Good route and steep climbing. It needs a bit of a cleaning as rocks will fall off onto anyone below so watch out. Jul 31, 2015
