Pop for the "knob" at the top.

Description 

Short but fun route on the Ship's Prow Boulder. Stand start on the small shelves with a high foot, and pop to a bump on top of face, this bump is slopey but if caught just right it is fairly good. The crux comes after this and is actually a foot movement, move your right foot to a shelf, which is bomber but it is really high. Once your feet are on this ledge you can stand on it but the hard part is not over, you must still pull over the top, and besides the bump your right hand is on, the top is fairly blank, there are small indents on the top that must be used also a heel hook with the left foot is a good idea.

Location 

On the Ship's Prow boulder, all the way left on the face that faces the road.
