Description 

This is a great wall with a lot of multi-pitch moderates. The rock is sandstone with varnish edges. The wall gets winter sun in the afternoon and shade in the morning. You can descend most routes with a single 60M. There are a few good trad/mixed routes, so don't leave your gear at home. The majority of the routes are 5.10 and are up to 250ft long.


Getting There 

Drive north out of St George on Rt 18. (Bluff St) Turn left on a gravel road at mile post 18. Drive 2 miles and turn left onto a dirt road below the cliff.

Haribangers shares the same start with Caging the Zealot. Depart left and onto the shoulder of the pillar after Zealot's fifth bolt. Gain a nice ledge with a rap anchor and belay from here. Haribangers casts off just left of the belay, it starts off insecure on shallow edges and demands adequate strength. Climb the arete past two bolts until you reach a more useful hold, Clip the third bolt and rock onto the face. Side pulls, edges, and a round pi...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

If you're looking for a nice local spot to eat at after climbing at Prophecy Wall stop in at the Red Dog Cafe in Dammeron Valley. They're a family run restaurant that specializes in burgers, steaks, and quality BBQ. The homemade pies are great.

There appear to be four bolted variations now to the first pitch of Sticky Revelations -- bright shiny metal everywhere you look, some just an arm's span apart. What a mess!

There's quite a spray of bolts along and below the traverse ledge near Secrets of Fatima, too. Secrets of Fatima is a proud line well separate from its neighbors, but is gym-ification the sad future of this cliff?

To end on a more positive note, we liked Red Dog Cafe too.

We've done a few of the routes on this cliff with all or mostly natural pro, only clipping the occasional bolt, safely, climbing past bolt after bolt next to perfectly bomber gear placements... Sad.

if you are a SLC climber who is looking for good winter climbing, this is a good place to go. 4 hours or less away from SLC, Prophesy wall is a great place to go for a weekender. Super fun climbs and camping spots abound.
And, as they mention in previous comments; there is a lot of bolts here, enough that sometimes its hard to pick out routes. But its still a great wall with a short approach and a lot of options in the .10 range.

FYI - Red Dog Cafe was closed and up for sale when I drove by it February 2013. Not sure what the details are or what happened.

The campsites near the prophecy wall were not too trashed a few days ago. We bagged out a bunch of cigarette butts and broken glass today tho. I know climbers are better than to leave trash in the campsites or crags, but it would help a lot if we each bagged some trash out when we come. Lets keep this awesome crag in great shape!

I think that this is a great place to climb. I agree that some climbs could have less bolts, but I prefer, i think, to either have a route be all trad or all sport, just to avoid carrying everything but the kitchen sink up the wall. My GF and I camped a couple hundred yards from the parking lot at a site in the trees and were not bothered by anything but snow on our third night there. The place was clean, and we had it all to ourselves for 2 beautiful days of climbing. The bolts are well placed for stress-free leads. The belay sites for 2nd and 3rd pitches were spacious and comfy. I have nothing bad to say about this place! One thing, not really bad, is that I thought a lot of the routes were easier than they were rated, (particularly the older ones), some by a letter grade, but there were a couple 10s that I'd say were 8+ or 9. Anyway, thanks to all the locals who made it such a sweet place and I hope to come again sometime!
