Description

Prophet's Honor begins on the slabby ledges to the right of Dark Corner. Climb the slab into a shallow overhanging alcove. Place good pro in the hand crack, traverse slightly left and go up the face to the top. Cool and fun climbing that protects reasonably well by Devil's Lake standards, especially with double ropes. Plenty of hidden crimps. Top moves are a bit run-out. Couldn't find info on first ascents. Swartling just lists the route as 5.9 without mentioning any names. I felt it was more like a solid 5.10.

Location

Steep face to the right of Dark Corner. Easily (and, in my opinion, unfairly) overlooked perhaps because of the vicinity of such popular classics as Cheatah and Breakfast of Champions. I had no idea there was even a route there until Paul Wagener pointed it out to me.

Protection

Up to #4 BD cams (#4 fits nicely on top of the shallow corner). Offset micronuts (Wild Country Superlights or HB's), Ballnuts.
