Prowler.

Description 

Pull out of the cave on jugs and zip up on more great stone. It is a tad pumpy for the grade. The first two clips are shared with the route immediately left.


Location 

This is the right-most of three routes.


Protection 

Half a dozen draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

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.
