The low angle looking prow that rises up to the east of Lil' Angel and uphill. Good protection and varied climbing, from horizontal gear to vertical cracks and nice bulges makes this an interesting line on good rock. There are biners on the anchors, but we would recommend belaying from the top and will likely replace with rap rings soon. Rope pulls fine. Head straight up the axis of the arete/prow with a slight left deviation to use the vertical crack.


Start just to the left of "Lil' Angel" and scramble up to the base of the "prow" that heads up, up and away from the buttress with the two TBA climbs.


Single bolt at the base of the main buttress to protect the harder moves (if you don't use the blocks to the left or right) staying on the line of the axis of the arete/prow.
