Not surprisingly, The Prow, is the pointed intersection of the two canyons of Paradise Forks. There are lots of good, long routes at The Prow and it's popular with climbers. During the summer season, it's mostly sunny in the morning, but in the shade later in the day, at least the side facing the Sine Wall.
The Prow Area is south along the same side of the canyon that contains Pillow Wall, at the intersection of the two canyons.

Better keep your eye on the target, and your trigger finger at the ready for this one. This route is to the right of On The Edge. Climb up a short, vertical band to a gravelly ledge. The route follows the seam/finger crack with some tight, steep moves down low, severe stemming and thin jamming in the middle, and nice long moves with positive fingers at the top.

When climbing on the Prow wall please try to find suitable gear anchors or use trees far from the edge. Please try to fight the urge to rap off the lone pine tree at the lip. Due to increased traffic over the years erosion is becoming a problem and well you kind of feel sorry for that ole tree.
