Harsh Reality starts on a lower angle ramp that steepens as it gets closer to the crux on the first pitch. Varnished holds, great exposure, and a long first pitch mark this typical Prophecy Wall route.

Pitch 1 - (5.9, 130 feet, 12 bolts) - Climb up and right on varnished holds that leads to the large crack system that start midway up the first pitch. Climb past mid route rappel anchors. Crux is the small roof at the 9th bolt. Continue climbing up lower angled climbing past 3 more bolts to a spacious ledge for the belay.

Pitch 2 - (5.9, 50 feet, 5 bolts) - Continue up the wall and to the right. Climb ends before the top of the wall.

Descent - Rap the route with two rappels. Mid route rappel anchors


Located 20 feet right of the start of Caging the Zealot.


12 bolts plus rappel anchors.
