Prowed** V5 6b / f6C
[Jason Darke on Prowed (V5 6b**), Hound Tor, 2 kb]3m. Behind Aerobic Wall, there's a prow of solid granite with a few horizontal breaks. 'Prowed' goes straight up the centre of this slightly overhanging face from the first slopey break to a vague slopey hold that seems impossible to grasp. From here and the little crimp just right, finish in the break just above.

from under-cut in break with left hand to good high crimp with right hand. then bring up left hand to the sloper crimp. easier than directly from slopers but still good moves.

Great dynamic deadpoint move to the sloper off low slopers - bit of a one move wonder, but a really nice move

There's no way this is as easy as V5. Was good conditions today and felt at least V6.

Tricky one-mover. Font 6c.

Done undercutting break for RH. Sees logical bearing in mind foot holds. Eliminate otherwise and pretty eliminate anyway.

Off the undercut, definitely harder off of the slopers in the break!
