Heather Songster styles up Crows Nest (and no, you...


Crow's Nest is located on the left (climber's left - south facing) side of The Prow in a corner system that doesn't reach the ground. It's sort of right below a scrubby pine tree on that side at the rim. To lead it, you rappel down to a ledge about 20 feet up, set an anchor and climb back out from there. A nice finger crack gives way to dicey intense stemming on slippery walls, then easier off the top.


Set of nuts, cams from 00 TCU up to #1 Camalot or so. Emphasis on small cams.

This route is a hidden gem. Neat stemming and facey climbing.

Led this off the ground, no rapping to the ledge.
Really fun moves, too bad so short.

I agree with Paul - you're not doing the route if you only do the last 40 ft... starts with a fun off-fingers crack that looks like it doesn't get done often, to a few mantles and finger cracks up the ledges. totally worth doing from the bottom.
