In the guide book they give this V2 and call it so...


Start with hands high in crack and step up. Follow crack as it tends left and finish on good holds and slab.


Front side (downhill facing) of large boulder you come to when entering the Prow area. Ten feet right of Tackle Box.


A few pads to protect traverse or an attentive spotter.

This climb ascends the striking, undulating left leaning crack on the main face of the Warm Up boulder at the Prow area. A down sloping hill guards this climb and the two climbs to the right on the same face. It's proper name is Vigilante, but many people call this the Warm Up Crack, just the same as folks call the Prow area the Warm Up area.

It is a bit tricky to get off the ground, but then the fun starts. Jugs and jams abound. The angle eases, but is sorta highball. A sit start is possible.

Whilst warming up once, with a group of guys I had just met, we were all climbing on this with just one pad underneath. We were chatting and no one was spotting. All of a sudden one guy pitched from the very top and rolled down the hill a bit, but was okay thankfully.
