Description 

Definitely worth a mention in any conversation debating the best route at Gretna, and could stack up against any area classic anywhere. Both the sit (V8) and the stand (V7) are amazing. The sit used to be V9 but a hold broke and brought it down a grade. No matter how you start it the top is tricky and there are a few different ways to do it. Whether you go with a heel hook, match, or all out dyno is up to you. No matter what you chose you'll be happy you stuck it.

Location 

On the Prow Boulder. Islander and The Prow share the same start. Stay on the face for Islander, bust right around the arete for The Prow. Do them both, they're rad!

Protection 

a few pads. It's not a high ball but it's high enough and there's some spice at the top. The landing area is nice and flat.
