Back in March of '05, I gave this a try. Deff har...
|Southeast Reservoir was closed and is no.|
Climb on the very small crimps and sidepulls to the right of Ship's Prow Left and to the left of the curving crack - this lovely crack is off for this fun balancy problem. If you don't rip your fingers on the first small and second smaller crimp, or the small undercling (which some actually use in their sequence, myself included) then you'll might just have some fun pulling on the opposing sidepulls before reaching the jugs.
Pad and a spotter is nice for the harpack flat landing. Topout is very easy highball.
Technical and fun.

[Awesome] route. The [crux] is so much fun. But be careful topping out, because the top is really narrow and you could go off the other side.

This route is great, fun balancy moves at the bottom, committing crux move and highball topout on huge jugs. Very good route. Probably only a V2 though.

I tried it but yeah... I need a spotter and a crash pad. I worked most of the moves and was able to do it but it took some balls without any protection.

None of these pictures are accurate in showing Finger Ripper. The proper route avoids the crack completely, using the two crimps on the face that are basically in line with each other (the lower one being much better than the higher). Move off of these crimps to the sidepulls located near the top of the lower face. Pull those feet up and commit for the bomber edge above.
For reference, yes, the two pictures are of Ship's Prow Right, while the "good form" picture is of another Standard Route on the Ship's Prow. This climb moves up from the undercling in the Curving Crack, out to a 3 finger crimp, and then up through the roof off of a fairly bomber sloper/sidepull.
