Description 

This climbs the left crack (Chimney Sweep) in the deep chimney system until the prow and then works right to the bolts and finishes on the prow. The crack is easy and enjoyable. When you get to the prow, don't be overwhelmed, as the faces get very smooth and stemming seems to be the key to get out on the prow. Second, flexibility in the legs and a long reach seem helpful.


Protection 

2 bolts up top for the anchors. 3 draws for the prow, and some medium gear for the crack leading to the prow.

No idea why this only has two stars on here and one star in the Ruckman Guide. Probably my favorite ten in BCC. Awesome stemming to a handful of fun uniquely exposed face moves up the prow complete with a bouldery throw to the mantle. Highly recommended.
