Climbs the South Prow, from Sky Pond About 8 pitches. Start on the west side of the spire, work your way onto the prow for 4-5 pitches, then head east under the summit. Descend the East Gully (a horror)

Awsome line!
First pitch crux, with some challenging route finding above. But Lord!, don't descend the East Gully as we did. It's shorter than going over the other side and hiking all the way back around to Sky Pond, but it is frightening. There is an unimaginable amount of loose rock, and I simply cannot believe we didn't get our ropes stuck.
