Rosario cleaning Route 66

Seasonal Raptor Closure starts Jan 15 each year; No top access - private land MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This is the best line on The Prow. Once one gets above the columns(~50'), the broken nature of the rock makes it dangerous. A thin crack at the bottom with some stemming. After about 25 feet the rock leans back for easier climbing.

Location 

Middle of the prow. It's sort of an alcove 2-3 ft deep due to columns on either side.

Protection 

Gear to 2"

There is quite a bit of loose rock at the top of this route. It could use a good trundling before an unfortunate belayer gets tagged with a 20lb dinner plate.

Fun climb though.

This climb is not pg-13, and there is not very much loose rock IMO. But hey, I climb at vantage ;)

Just climb the first 50 feet. Above that the rock was jumbled and didn't seem to be worth climbing it. Webbing for rap anchor

This was a very fun and chill route, especially the fun stems in the beginning. I don't think this is PG-13, and I'm a pretty new trad leader. It's a relatively short route, and takes good gear from med-large cams and nuts. Yes, there are large loose rocks at the top, but that's no different than most crags. As of 6/19/16 there is a cluster of slings (2 ok slings, 1 rotten) at the top to rap from. If you were to replace/add material, you'd probably need about 6-8 feet (rough guess). You could also build an anchor, bring up your buddy, then scramble out the top of the cliff and circle around climber's left.
