The Prow, Washington Column

Sep 6th 2014 — California,Climbing,Walls,Yosemite — 8:57 am

Last week Richard and I climbed The Prow on Washington Column. This was the first time I had ever slept in a portaledge and the first time I have ever done a route where you have to haul all your gear up with you.

The route is steep and exposed, tall compared to the rest of the planet but a short wall by Yosemite Valley standards.

Props to Richard for swinging leads with me, all his help with rope management and hauling, and his easy-going attitude.
