Description 

Climb past the schist band and attain the center crack. The crack takes good gear and protects well. Follow the crack until it ends then move up and left to a double set of bolts, clip and move up and rt to the 2 second bolt (not seen from previous bolt, do not go left, which is the weakness). continue up attaining the anchors, note that these are the only bolts on the route besides the anchors, hence PG-13 rating.


Location 

Approach:
This route is found on the Middle Marker formation. From the Emancipation pullout, Middle Marker is the major formation seen in front of you, as you are traveling away from Mt Rushmore.
Deja Vu Prophecy, Roadside Plum, & Raisins in the Sun are all located on this southernly aspect. Gain the base of the formation.
Deja Vu Prophecy will be a bolted route on the left side, Roadside Plum is the center crack above the schist band, and Raisins in the Sun is the crack on the right in the water groove.
