Messing around on the Southwest Prow.

Full rack of Bigbros.

Pretty easy route, not a good landing.

A fun route. I'm a newb, so not very easy for me, but I got it on the second try. It's a little hard to see the jugs at the top, but reach as far as you can and you will have a great hold. I agree with the above post, as there is a ridge of rock that will cause your crash pad to be at an angle.

My favorite V0. Has great holds and a nice sequence. Highly recommended.

Fun route, but as others have said, not the greatest of landings. Watch the topout!
