OK, I made up the route name. This is a variation of the first pitch of The Roofs of Jericho. Follow the first seven bolts and then continue straight up to a two-bolt anchor under the roof. Alternatively, go right a bit and clip two more bolts, traverse left a bit and then reach the anchors (The Roofs of Jericho follows the aforementioned two bolts and continues up and over the roof to a different anchor.)

Large varnished edges, a few slopers if you want them, and a few pinches as well. If you go straight up after the seventh bolt the varnished edges end and you continue up on rounded slopers and rounded edges. The bit from the seventh bolt to the anchors is a bit more run out than the rest, but is on somewhat easier ground.


There is a light-colored, smoother-looking area right about the middle of Prophesy Wall. This route starts at the left side of the smoother-looking area, just right of the vertical bulge that delimits the left side of the area. It is also under a large roof/arch.


7 bolts (or 9), 2 bolt anchor with quicklinks/chain connectors, and also webbing with a rap ring and a quicklink (as of Oct 2007).

Unsure where this is? Are you saying this and RofJ use the same bolts to start?
