The route starts up the mossy arete to the right of the rather blank tan face that is to the right of the start of Roofs of Jericho (10 bolts, 5.9). The first pitch ends at an anchor on a large ledge beneath the vertical red face. The second pitch ascends the steep face past 7 bolts to a three bolt anchor. Descent can be done in two rappels with a single rope, although there will be a bit of down climbing on the second rappel.


Bolts. Anchors have rap rings.

That second pitch is wicked! The first was not so great but the second up the steep smooth upper face was killer. I think it is accurately rated at 10d, but that said I'd say that it is significantly harder than any of the other similarly rated climbs on this wall. It must be a pretty new route, someone had lightly marked key holds with blue chalk, which I was greatful for, otherwise I would not have been able to climb it clean.

Some route correction(s):

One, the wonderful first pitch is 14 bolts long (not 10), and the rappel is all of 110'- be aware. Yes, there are anchors at the end of this pitch.

Two, the second pitch crux is on bolts 1 and 3, and is ego based sandbagged at 10d- we thought it to be as difficult as 11c- tho 4 thru to the anchor felt like 10d. We recognize that there are areas in the country where it would be entirely appropriate to rate this climb as a 10d- plenty of them- just not here at the Prophesy Wall.
