JJ on Boyd's masterpiece, Prosthesis 5.11.

Description 

Another great line that has the trad/sport Peaks Crag attitude. Climb up through low angle terrain to a steep cove. Start clipping bolts and bust out through a steep roof bulge and into the nice headwall. Awesome movement in a mini dihedral.

Location 

Starts left of Lion's Bait. A piece of gear can protect the easy start terrain and a thin hands piece will be important for the exit at the top.

Protection 

Bolts
Optional gear at start
Thin hands piece for exit at top

As if not fun enough... This beautiful crag classic can be done completely on gear! If you decide to take off on this sort of adventure bring some micro cams and singles of stuff. Brass offsets were rad in the seams in the middle. I'd go as far to say that this route is safe on gear as long as you place it correctly. Put some duct tape over the bolts so you are not tempted.
