Description

Answered Prayers is a really cool route, and a good one to get used to placing small gear at a moderate grade. After scrambling up to the "head wall", get in some gear and then pull through the bulging wall above. A lack of footholds makes this an interesting proposition. Once above the bulge, you're in a nice dihedral. Stem and jam your way to the top. The upper dihedral is a little sparse on gear, so make sure you get a couple good pieces in the clean crack before you launch into the last half of the dihedral. Also, work all the options, and look out to the left arete for good holds.

Location

This route is just right of Sparky and the Firedog. It starts just right of the big clearing in the center of the wall (where routes like Morning's Mourning and Orange Out Direct are located). Climb up next to a big tree that's growing into the rock about ten feet off the ground. This is the right route that goes through the bulging wall.

Protection

This pitch has a lot of small gear in between beefier placements. Small/ medium wires and small cams a must. Doubles from #000 through #2 Camalot.
