Description:

Leftmost route (to date) on the main, obvious prow. 1st pitch follows bolts over easy (5.6) ground to nearly impossible roof. Bypass this on 5.9 slab to the left and risk a large swing. Regain 5.6 terrain to the bolted belay @ nearly 190 ft. 2nd pitch short but sweet. Overhanging jugs, exposed and 5.9 to a mantle top out and bolted belay. Link the first pitch of the standard route to the second pitch of this one for max. pleasure. Walk off.

4 out of 5 stars The Roof

went straight through the roof. Took a few tries, once my friend showed me the foot work, it wasn't as hard as it looks. Recommend pre-hanging a longer sling at the bolt up and to the right of the roof (just past the one on the lip), to help with rope management. Fell a few times from just the lip bolt, and it wasn't that bad, though.

3 out of 5 stars Fun route

Like the previous comment noted, the roof move is TOUGH! Took a nice fall trying to pull through it but ended up bypassing along the slab traverse to the left then back right to the bolt line (falling on this bypass would not be fun so be sure you can deal with it...solid 5.9). The 2nd pitch is short but super fun juggy holds on a slight overhang.
