Routes in The Prophet

You Lichen My Flakes T 5.8+ 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c

Description

Good quality rock that's seen virtually no traffic resulting in much lichen. Roughly 200ft near vertical wall with flake and crack systems galore. Secluded from other areas, but on second pitch can see Lookout to the South.

Getting There

Approach is the same as to the Magician until you reach a huge boulder on your left (North) about 200 meters NW from the Magician's stairs. Go left past the boulder and scramble down the ledges and low angle rock (approx. 150ft) until you reach near vertical rock where you'll likely have to rappel. No fixed anchors exist as of OCT2015. Top of vertical rock to bottom is about 200ft.

Alternate approach (my first): Begin from saddle where hiking trail dips into a large saddle. Before trails moves uphill, scoot left around rock and scree for an hour or so passing large horizontal flake systems. Very difficult, slow movement here. You're blazing your own path.

Jonathan, thanks so much for posting!

I'm very curious about the location of this cliff. Below is a map with the Magician and then a detail shot. Is this where you climbed? Thanks for clarifying. Any additional info would be appreciated!
