Sweat and short, great work again by Richard, Mill Creek has turned into a legit climbing destination. Lots for climbs for trad leaders, sport or beginners, from 5.8s to 5.12+.
Prowler is a really fun climb, hard and power moves right off the ground, probably more toward 10c/d if you are not used to pulling overhangs. It's short but has a challenging middle traverse crux, and it's pumpy. Be sure to take your rests when you get them. So it could go in the middle-10c range when you connect all the moves.
I have watched two, 5.12 climbers miss the onsight on this climb, tricky until you figure it out.
