Comments: Climbed this route the other day. Fun movement, ample protection, and good position. A bit of loose rock here and there but overall a good quality line. Thx!

My main feedback is that the belays are in odd places. I would recommend bringing a light rack so you can belay at the natural breaks in the route and not at the awkward hanging stances. We were able to make comfy belays off a few cams and the many shiny bolts on route.

Comments: I think both those routes on the prow go at 9+/ 10-. This place is rad -- fun limestone sport climbing in a remote and scenic spot. Hard to beat!

Comments: Kudos to the folks who bolted the descent (Thanks CJ)! Great route. 60m won't make it to the rappel anchors if you try to link the last 2 pitches. I tried and got very very close. I recommend making a belay when you can because it gets slabby and crackless if you go too high.

Comments: It is a volcanic rock called Breccia--a conglomeration of volcanic ash, rubble, etc.
