This well-named route ascends the exposed prow.

Pitch 1: Angle left to prow, passing just above its lowest ceiling (at 20'). Weave through more overhangs and continue up the prow to a belay at a small cedar (the upper one, closer to the prow).
Pitch 2: Move up to a ceiling and climb this at a crack on the left, then continue to the top.


The exposed prow where the 'Black Wall' and the 'Triumverate Wall' meet.


Set of nuts, small to medium cams.

Definitely a sandbag at 5.5. More like 5.7. Still a good route though. Lots of exposed and thought provoking moves. Sometimes route finding is hard and pro can be a little hard to get, but can be found. Save some thin or big gear for the belay. Doubles on the #3 Camalot were handy near the start. Finish at the bolts on Triumvirate. Doubles needed to rap.

Nice climb with a long first pitch. I would say a solid DWG 5.5 with juggy holds if you look for them, but some moves exposed more than others. Plenty of gear- C3's through hand sized C4's, with a set of nuts & tri-cams.

This route was a lot of fun. Great view, some bold moves, but I felt pretty good most of the time. Placed a bunch of gear, took time to place in some spots, but overall it was good. It was covered in spider webs, added to the fun. First pitch was harder then the second.
