The outrageous ship's prow arete overhangs at 45° for most of its length. It has three hard sections with shakeouts in between. The first is a radical groove, then a crack bisecting a series of huge roofs and finally a less-steep arching crack and bands of horizontals with tough moves to reach the belay. There are around 22 bolts. © Rockfax
