Southwest Face of the Prow, Slow Pitch (5.10c) – Skaha

The Southwest Face of the Prow on Skaha. Man, what an epic always. It’s called ‘Slow Pitch’ because the rope drag slows you down, or in my case, stops me about 2 meters from the anchor. Use double-link slings on the initial rope or prepare to cry. I also forgot half my rack at the base of this climb, which really sucked. Nonetheless, it’s an INCREDIBLE line and the only true multipitch in the park that I know of. It is NOT TO BE MISSED by those up to some 5.10+ crack climbing in Skaha!
