This is a subarea of Lime Park (a.k.a. Lime Creek). It has at least 6 routes.

Getting There 

Two roads access the canyon, one on each side of the creek. The West road deadends just below The Prow. An improvised footbridge crosses the creek at the last pullout before the end of the road. Cross the footbridge and follow the climbers trail up the hill. The trail forks just under the prow. Take the left fork to access the Prow routes; the right fork leads you to the North Wall.

The Honeymoon Is Over 5.13b 8a 29 IX+ 30 E7 6c  CO : Eagle/Vail/Minturn/Red Clif... : ... : The Prow
This is a new testpiece for the canyon! This route hits you right off the ground with a stout boulder problem, which is reachy from bolt 1 to 2 to get to the right hand pocket. Power your way past this first bulge, and crawl into a no-hands rest up and left in the shallow, right-facing corner. You get a major rest here, but it's not over until you climb through the thin, back-to-back 5.12 sequences towards the top. This route is the real deal for Lime Creek and is a 4 star 5.12c if you aid past ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
