Comments: Anyone know if this climb absolutely requires aid gear? Can I go and just pull on some quick draws to get up, or do I need etriers?

Comments: Fun and easy. Gets thin for like 3 moves on P1, and then the rest is essentially just scrambling (esp. P4).

Comments: Anyone know if there's been any development out here in the last 5 years? I got a summer job in Blanding, and I plan on climbing here frequently. I'd love to flesh out the MP listings with more problem descriptions, photos, and videos.

I've looked over the Dr. Topo PDF- is that most up-to-date source of information for the area?

Comments: As of March 2016 there are two Metolius rap anchors at the top of the first pitch, just below the roof. No need to leave gear, just rap off.

Comments: After the closely spaced bolts down low, did not expect the relative run out on the slab to the anchors.

Fun easy climbing up to the last bolt, but I did not dig the slab. As a tall dude the only way I could make it work was with some super awkward high feet.

If sandy slab is your jam, then more power to ya, but I think there's much better offerings at Prophesy in this grade range.

Comments: Climbed this over the weekend. Doesn't seem to get done much. The first 20 feet or so were pretty dirty and had lichen growing on it. After the first few bolts the route cleans up and is very enjoyable climbing on good varnish, up until the crux.

As stated, the crux is about 3/4 of the way up. The varnish gives way to softer white sandstone for 5-10 feet. The holds were a little slopey and often covered in a thin layer of sand. Instead of trying to go straight up the dirty blank section, we cli... more >>

Comments: So is this wall called Prophecy or Prophesy? Every person I've ever talked to has called it Prophecy, but here on MP it's listed as Prophesy. Type-o?

Comments: Yes, I have climbed it. It just looks different than I remember it. The coloration of the rock appears to be different, although maybe that is just the photo itself. And I had thought Redtail was further around the corner of Morning Glory Spire. I don't remember it being visible from Fall Line (Look at this photo as an example: mountainproject.com/v/10728754... ).

Like I said, I could be mistaken, and if you're sure, you're sure. I don't claim to be an expert on the area or anything :... more >>

Comments: This photo is submitted under "Fall Line .10b" on the Morning Glory Spire at City of Rocks. I could be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure this is not Fall Line.

Comments: Did this climb yesterday, and we were a little thrown off by the third pitch. After the first 3 bolts there was an unexpected runout on easy climbing. It was nothing really dangerous, but it wasn't mentioned in the book. It wouldn't hurt to have another bolt somewhere in there.

The bouldery start of P3 on the big flake definitely made the climb for me! I would also recommend continuing up to the Skyline anchors and rapping from there.

Comments: As I was climbing straight up this I was thinking, "I'm making this a lot harder than it has to be..." I'm glad there are other MPers who agree!

As far as the chains are concerned, they seemed fine to me, although I didn't really give them a careful analysis.

Comments: Definitely gets thin! Felt harder than .10a to me, but maybe that's just because of the exposure. By far one of the coolest rock faces I've ever layed eyes on!

Comments: As a taller climber I found this route to be pretty stout. Moving up the crux past the bolt required some weird back-step & knee-drop action. My shorter partners just stemmed up without too much hassle.

Comments: A high friction-y stance with my left hand in the under cling allowed me to reach for the chalked up jug above the roof with my right hand. A few decent pinches for the left hand and more high feet made pulling the roof pretty simple. Great hand and foot jamming up the crack, with some face features along the way. Fun route!

Comments: As Derek said, pretty new to trad. Got a handful of trad climbs under our belts, but MAN when that rain came whipping down, and my only option was to keep going up or leave 6 pieces on the wall... Not my idea of a good time.

That aside, it was great watching Derek climb before the rain started, and I can appreciate the appeal of the climb. Just don't do it in the rain!

Comments: I think it's worth mentioning that the three bolts directly below Glass Ocean are not part of Glass Ocean. They are Left and Right Tributaries, and are rated 5.10d/5.11a.

Glass Ocean shares the same starting bolts as Northwest Passage, then takes a jog to the right at the ledge.

I suspect people don't realize this when attempting Glass Ocean, hence the comments about difficulty at the beginning.

Comments: Doesn't look like much from below, but when you get up on the route, there's a lot of fun to be had. You're super exposed, kind of dangling from this roof system, which is way fun, but the holds are all where you need them and are consistently positive.

If you are in the area, make sure to give this one a shot!

Comments: Thin and fun!

If you climb left of the three bolts, it's this climb, and if you climb right of the same bolts, it's Right Tributary.
