Another route with big sculpted holds, Breaking the Sabbath offers another easy option on the right side of Prophecy Wall. Shares the start with the left variation of Sticky Revelations and trends left to the start of the Book of Revelations variation.


Start on the left variation for Sticky Revelations and go left a the 2nd Bolt.


9 bolts plus anchors

Fun climb and great access route to book of prophecy. I actually combined the 2 for a long fun climb. Just use lots of long runners to decrease rope drag.

This is the 3rd bolt line from the right. Starts in a corner next to a large pillar. Route splits after the first bolt. L-->Breaking the Sabbath and R-->1st pitch of Sticky Revelations.

I'm confused, is the there really only 1 pitch to this route? If it's the one I'm thinking of, it looks like it goes on and joins with Sticky Revelations at the top of P2. Any help?

Breaking the Sabbath is the bolted line that breaks left from the Start of Sticky Revelations. The trad line in the dihedral above that is Book of Prophesy Var which does indeed share the anchors for the top of P2 of Sticky Revelations.
