Description 

Not surprisingly, The Prow, is the pointed intersection of the two canyons of Paradise Forks. There are lots of good, long routes at The Prow and it's popular with climbers. During the summer season, it's mostly sunny in the morning, but in the shade later in the day, at least the side facing the Sine Wall.

Getting There 

The Prow Area is south along the same side of the canyon that contains Pillow Wall, at the intersection of the two canyons.

Featured Route For The Prow
Shittin Bricks takes THE line to the top on this otherwise scruffy section of cliff.  90' of really good climbing.

Shittin Bricks 5.12- 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  AZ : Paradise Forks : The Prow
Shittin Bricks is one of the longest 5.12s at the Forks and is a full value adventure. Start off on a thankfully short chossy band of sandstone. Work the tight finger jams, positive small edges and gastons, and some burly stemming to reach easier climbing... Slightly smaller than average fingers might be an advantage on this one.

When climbing on the Prow wall please try to find suitable gear anchors or use trees far from the edge. Please try to fight the urge to rap off the lone pine tree at the lip. Due to increased traffic over the years erosion is becoming a problem and well you kind of feel sorry for that ole tree.
