Description 

This is the best line on The Prow. Once one gets above the columns(~50'), the broken nature of the rock makes it dangerous. A thin crack at the bottom with some stemming. After about 25 feet the rock leans back for easier climbing.


Location 

Middle of the prow. It's sort of an alcove 2-3 ft deep due to columns on either side.


Protection 

Gear to 2"

There is quite a bit of loose rock at the top of this route. It could use a good trundling before an unfortunate belayer gets tagged with a 20lb dinner plate.

Fun climb though.

This climb is not pg-13, and there is not very much loose rock IMO. But hey, I climb at vantage ;)
