Description

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

Location

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

Protection

12 bolts plus rappel anchors.
Hey! Can somebody tell me if its possible to do this wall with a 60m rope, or do I need an 80m rope to safely rappel down the first pitch? May 6, 2016

I think this is the one that has painted black hangers? Apr 6, 2016
We made the mistake of bringin a 2nd rope up to rap in just one go from the very top. The rope drag was so intense we almost couldnt pull th rope after rappeling. I would advise rappeling in stages just to avoid this. May 2, 2014

First time at Prophecy wall. The sandy footholds got some taking used to, and a foothold broke off while climbing, but still really fun! Gonna definitely spend a good weekend in this area.

The climb is great though. Good exposure for people not used to it (the route starts on a ledge already 50 feet up). The route also gets quite vertical, which is fun for a 5.9 Oct 9, 2012
