5 or so bolts up to a two bolt anchor. Or top roped if accessed from the back ramp.

Is this the bolted line to the left of Black Cleft?

Original topo for the Promised Land (done by Rusty Baillie) only shows a line with a piton noted about halfway up. Could have been bolted since then...but yes, Prow is just left of the Black Cleft. From what I saw recently (Apr. 2016), the route still requires some small to med gear in the middle. High first bolt, three bolts, then some pro in small cracks, then two bolts to the finish.

Hey Greg the original route follows a crack up to the piton and continues up a crack left of the bolted line. The bolted line is much newer and seems easier. The bolts on the new line are poorly placed. Fun line though.

Indeed. Many bolts, closely and strangely placed, making for an easier line than Black Cleft for sure. But, certainly a fun route with a great overhanging top out. Will try to original on gear next time, slightly to the left I'm guessing.
