|Thin Air Face
Ever look up at "Toe Crack" and wonder what route tackles the steep face with bolts between it and "Turners Flake?" Well wonder no longer, it's "Pro Choice" and it's a fun little adventure.
There are a bunch of different ways to start. I began at a gear belay at the base of "Toe Crack." From here climb up and left to the first bolt at the first overlap. Pull the first overlap and up to the next crux overlap. Pull this, then up to the cave belay on "Standard Route."

Were you on this route today?
I may have spoken with you from the ground after taking a detour on my way down from the Prow.
If so, good on you for getting out, despite all the wetness.

Yeah, that was me. This climb was one of the few that were dry on the cliff that day. Nice job on The Prow.

i agree with the guide book this route is very fun to climb but a little bit contrived... the only part i thought was contrived was at the crux bolt it looked easier to go around to the right (though not as fun) but instead you kinda know you are supposed to pull the fun roof on the left... the bolt here feels a little far to the right and i didnt want to take the swinging fall...
after that there is a bit of run out 5.7ish, the one piece i got in a 40+ft stretch was a small cam behind a crappy flake and never would have held... not hard, just be ready...
over all i say CLIMB IT! no one is ever on it, it drys fast, and is fun...
