Weta Prowl

Type: 
Alpine
Description: 
On the centre of the shorter right hand, west facing wall. From its low point, scramble up and left for about 60m to a scree shelf. Climb the slab for 6 or more pitches between the two rock flanges at up to grade 14. The last pitch places you on a ridge where a short final pitch gets you over the first and most difficult of the ridges obstacles. The ridge is then followed for about 150m as a difficult scramble to the summit. 300m height gain, plenty of protection on excellent rock.

Comments

A short detour onto the prow on the right shortly above where it becomes prominent (traverse twin horizontal cracks rightwards onto crest, follow it) offers a more exposed variation on mainly beautiful red rock; "Weta Prow" 16.
