Description:

This route follows the left facing crack system to the left of Roofs of Jericho. Climb up the cracks and patinas for 100-130 feet then traverse right over to the last anchor on the ledge of Roofs of Jericho (5.9+ or .10a, i think). The last pitch climbs the chimney on the left of the ledge to the top (5.7). Enjoy. I think that the picture "climbing at the Prophecy Wall" is of someone repeating this route but I haven't confirmed it yet. When I led it there were patinas breaking off in my hands frequently so I climbed it as gingerly as possible and Tyler cleaned it up pretty good on follow. FA Pete Van Slooten (rocknpowda) and Tyler Phillips (tylerphillips), circa 1998.
