Just above the last bolt.

Start under the overhang on the left side. The first bolt is a little run out but on easier climbing. Climb straight up to the first and second bolt. Then pull through a chimney feature near an old bird nest. After that, do a fun, 'very' exposed traverse for 20 feet to the prow. Then run it out up the ridge to the top for a chain anchor.


This route is located about 100-150 feet North from where the Nautilus Cave is. The route is on the left side of a large overhang.


5 quickdraws + anchor. Use a long, extended draw for the second bolt to help reduce rope drag.

This is an awesome route. Your heart gets pumping the first time you negotiate the traverse. No single move is too hard, but the route offers a lot in a short period.

This is a fun route that is easier than it first appears.

As of May 2013, there is a large bird's nest just over the roof with shit all over some useful holds. It was unoccupied today, and the route was still climbable.
