Panty Prow is a really fun arete climb on a formation just left of the main Panty Wall. It climbs the right side of the wall past 5 bolts.
Quickdraws. Fixed anchor at the top.
It was so hot on Panty Prow
Me leading for the first time at the Panty Prow! S...

This climb is a good way to reach the anchors, in order to set up a top-rope for the awesome slab climbs on Panty Wall proper.

Although it is not the easiest place to get to, especially the uninitiated, I found the Prow to have great position and great climbing. A bit short but in this place at 5.6 it is worth 3 stars IMHO.

I would highly suggest this route to a novice climber for the exposure alone. It's 5.6, but you "feel" like you're super-exposed from both sides at different points on the route, especially if you've never been "truly" exposed. I also like to take newbies to this climb for the awesome "Cliffhanger" swing that can safely be done from the anchors with no rope rubbing... just run across the face as fast as you can and then leap for joy! =)

The hairiest 5.6 you will ever climb.

I'd say you want to be pretty darn comfortable at the grade before leading this one.

Don't be deterred by the above comments. Yes there is some exposure, but the rating is on par with most 5.6 climbs. Very easy and comfortable if you can keep the exposure out of your head. Great climb and fun to do some rappel running!
