Deep Prok is a typical E-Rock slab climb that starts below the center part of the Runamuck arch. Start below a bolt about eight feet off the ground. Clip the bolt and head right to a second bolt under the center of the arch. Climb to the arch (good 0.5 Camalot placement here), pull over, and work up a small headwall to the third bolt. After the third bolt, the angle eases a little, but the climbing remains a little thin up to the fourth bolt. From here the rest of the route is pretty easy. Head up to a good sized ledge split by a large crack passing two more bolts en route to the anchors. Either rappel the route, or scramble up and over the top of the dome.


Six quickdraws, a small cam or two (0.5 Camalot) to protect the moves over the arch, and something for the anchors at the top.

per Kieth Guillory,I think he said, "prok" is an acronym meaning protect in crack.

After the first bolt, doesn’t the route go straight up to the second bolt, then place gear to protect the overlap. Then up to third bolt, left and up for the rest?

yes, that's correct.

70m is required to top-rope this, or set long anchor. Knot the end of your rope either way.
