Description:

From the gully, scramble down & right until you get to the very end of a tree-covered ledge extending out on to the slab. This start avoids the pitches below that are not worthwhile. 4 pitches, total of 360'. Need mostly nuts and cams.

5 out of 5 stars First Multipitch

This was my first multipitch climb. Amazingly perfect and easy climb with ample protection and perfect ledges to belay from. The third pitch is money fo sho.

5 out of 5 stars Midnight Ascent

First time climbing in the gorge and first time night climbing. Still quite a bit of exposure even at midnight, can't imagine the climb in the daylight. The hike in and out was definately worth the expereince!!

4 out of 5 stars Midnight Train

Excellent first time on the Prow. 5 of us decided to hike out and simul-climb it in 3 pitches. Took 2 ropes and tied in half-ways. Great climb must go back for a daytime redpoint. Sweet lightening across the gorge came in - booked it back to camp :)
