The bolted route just left of Blind Prophet. Crimp your way through waves of swirled rock to a marginal rest before the crux at the small roof. Tweak your way through powerful gastons and long reaches to the anchors.


Just left of Blind Propher

I don't know why this would be rated PG13. If you stick-clip the first bolt, it's got the most closely spaced bolts at Pilot.

It's rated pg-13 because the middle section has some questionable holds, and I have personally had one break on me and I ended up a few feet from the ground. Make sure you grab something solid between the second and third bolts!

Make sure you do one of the two sick extensions when you send the meat. I chose the easier one (left). Definately makes this route awesome.

Great climb. Holds seem solid to me, small but solid. Maybe it has gotten cleaner?
