The outside of the largest prow has a "pillar" crack. Begin by standing on the boulder at the base of the prow (this is ~60' above the bottom). Gain the pillar and climb up the outside of the nose.
The pillar is a 7' tall block of rock less than 3' wide, sitting on a ledge. While it has been yanked on often, it is a bit unnerving!
Summit ridge of Crane Mtn., right of the ladder, the outside arête of the tallest prow. Unmistakeable.
This route has been soloed. Protection behind the pillar is possible...but would it hold?

The start is a little tricky, but for someone taller it wasn't so bad. The large flake used on the bottom half is... going to break off someday. lol
