BETA PHOTO: Prion's west and south faces.


Prion is a medium-sized boulder. Problems exist on its vertical south face. The rock quality is good, and the landings that neighbor it are as well. An ascent requires a short downclimb.

Getting There 

It is located at the southwest corner of the Blue Moon area. This boulder marks the imaginary divide between the Pink Floyd and Blue Moon areas. It's probably best to park at the Chinese Algebra area, pass through the green gate, head downhill, cross East Creek, make a right at the dirt track, follow the track for about 5 minutes, make a left up the wash, head up toward the canyon wall, and it will be on your right. Reference the page map for clarification.
