Description 

A long and absolute gem of a route that once better cleaned could become an area classic. Climbs very adventurous and wanders a bit.

Steep(ish) start on great holds leads to a cruiser middle half on an excellent gray slab, following edges and jugs up to a small arete. The bolt line takes a slight traverse left under an obvious steep dihedral feature. From here crank a couple powerful moves on interesting crystal-lined pockets to gain a crux move around the prominent hanging arete to the right. Tackle the blank face above this utilizing the arete until an excellent rest ledge can be reached, and make the last committing moves to the anchors.

Expect great holds where you need them and aesthetic movement.

Location 

Right hand bolt line at the flat base area beneath the Prow

Protection 

2 ropes required for rappel on this one. Tag a line as you climb. May be wise to extend a couple draws.

15 bolts to chains
