This is a clean, enjoyable climb with wide-open views. Begin just left of the prow (at top) of the cliff, and make a relatively straight path toward it. About halfway up, climb over the bulge, avoiding the Starting Point crack on the left side and the Blackbeard crack on the right side. Enjoy a look behind you over the lake before finishing up inside the prow. (Mind the loose chockstone below the bulge.)
Approach the main cliff - southwest side of hill, easily identifiable by the A-Dawg graffiti (2013) - by the red arrow trail, which passes just along the base. To access the top, pass right of the cliff and take the left turnoff (1-2 mins past cliff.) This climb is on left end of the main cliff between the "Starting Point" and "Blackbeard" crack systems. Look up for the prominent prow that marks the top of all 3 climbs.
There are trees approx 20-25 feet from top. Limited options for gear anchors.
