<b> <br /><ul style='margin:0 0; padding:0 0;'><li> Harbingers- 2 Pitches- 5.11b/</li></ul></b> Definitly the best route at Prophesy Wall and most challenging.    Beautiful solid aręte following a tower up the left side of the middle routes of Prophesy Wall.   The first pitch is the same for Conditional Bliss and Caging the Zealot.   Then turn left to the base of the tower.   Take on an overhanging face just right of the aręte and turn out onto it for easier moves up to the crux final which is a wild move, no feet, back right to the overhanging anchor.  60’ on six bolts. Prophesy Wall, St. George, UT, March, 2007

<b> <br /><ul style='margin:0 0; padding:0 0;'><li> Whatever Happens… Happens – 90’- 5.9/</li></ul></b> Surprisingly nice route.  I had done the Roofs of Jericho two days earlier and looked over at this route and thought it was another soft rating by Todd on Prophesy.  But it is a long steep route that gives you two 5.9 moves towards the finish, both kind of overhanging type stuff where you have to trust heavily on some precarious varnish.  Although it is well bolted, a fall on this kind of stuff will take some skin with it.  This is a long route moving over the left hand side of the arch to a rap chain.   The rap below the arch is not for this route.  11 bolts to anchor.  <b>I took this photo after I led it from belaying below Roofs of Jericho, May, 2007, Prophesy Wall</b>
