|The Prow (classic)||8a|
|50m, 3 pitches. One of the historic landmark routes of the Peak. The way to climb it these days is in one giant pitch from the ground for an amazing 8a tick, although it is still a good 7c+ tick done in one pitch to the belay of Body Machine. Climb up the Body Machine start then traverse rightwards past a belay and up the technical wall to a big hole in the break. Move slightly right again and then straight up the tufa line via superb moves. Enter the massive groove line above and get a sneaky rest at the Body Machine belay. Finally climb up to the giant roof and exit via very powerful moves to a belay up and right. © ROCKFAX|
