Pull out of the cave on jugs and zip up on more great stone. It is a tad pumpy for the grade. The first two clips are shared with the route immediately left.


This is the right-most of three routes.


Half a dozen draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

Sweat and short, great work again by Richard, Mill Creek has turned into a legit climbing destination. Lots for climbs for trad leaders, sport or beginners, from 5.8s to 5.12+.

Prowler is a really fun climb, hard and power moves right off the ground, probably more toward 10c/d if you are not used to pulling overhangs. It's short but has a challenging middle traverse crux, and it's pumpy. Be sure to take your rests when you get them. So it could go in the middle-10c range when you connect all the moves.

I have watched two, 5.12 climbers miss the onsight on this climb, tricky until you figure it out.

Stout, from start to finish. If you are short, it might be tough to hang the draw at the 4th (I think) bolt. Pumpy climbing to a hurried rockover. Pretty cool.

By popular demand, this route now has an independent lower anchor. See Mill Creek Block page for details.
