Climbs the striking beauty Prow/Arête black and silver stripped. Starts up on a small ledge. Hard crimps and sloppers lead to a vicious Boulder problem. Part 1 of the Prow Projext has been sent in July 2016 by Alex Megos at the grade of 5.14b/c.

CANADAS FIRST 5.15! Which took Megos 7-8 visits to Ravens for. Easy to spot walking into the crag, as the streaked nature of the line, makes it look like a massive, silver lighting bolt, into the cliff. Extremely delicate moves off micro holds, that look like nothing but dimples of limestone, go up the stunning, sharp streaked prow. The extension above the Orginal Prow Project that was bolted by Peter Arbic. Sonnie Trotter added 10 bolts creating Alex Megos' insane and mega steep, test piece. Another hard Boulder problem (Vhard) consisting of bad slopping dimples and tiny beyond micro-edges and a mad dash to the anchor!

The old closed project in the left facing corner, to the right of TellTale heart Pitch 1. The original line was envisioned up the corner with minimal cleaning. The old project has been cleaned and rebolted. Climb the very funky corner system with a few crimpy moves until you encounter a technical crux up the top. Shared anchor as Telltale pitch 1.

Fun technical 5.11 edge climbing punctuated by nice buckets lead to a great crux before the anchor. *Completely retrobolted (June 2016) by James Blackhall and Greg Tos

FA: Peter Arbic

From the anchors of Pitch 1, tackle the powerful head wall to the burly roof. Once over the roof a never ending sea of technicalities awaits for some time. Hang on and enjoy the view! Absolutely classic. *Completely retrofitted with new gear (June 2016).

A burly finish to Telltale pitch 2, Branching right from near the top with a harder move. This route seeps the most on the wall, therefore probably hasn't had a second ascent. Project J in Bow Valley sport but has been sent.

Set by Peter Arbic

A hard opening move gains a crack in a left facing corner. From the 3rd bolt, step left and execute cool moves between steep jugs that leads to a power draining, sequential crux. Buckets finish it! * Completely Retrobolted (June 2016) by James Blackhall.

FA: Peter Arbic

Continue past the anchor by launching directly into a crux that utilizes small crimpers. Followed by sustained climbing that leads to a powerful and technical crux that guards the anchor. More like 13A then 12D but it's a "PA" 12d so.....

FA: Peter Arbic

Right of Fight Club P1, starting atop of a choss stack, climbs this power endurance piece. Begins with hard pulls and a sweet dyno, into a rest, then firing a technical traverse into a sequential pillar. Make sure you didn't get pumped because the crux lies above and a stroll to the anchor. Classy line
