After 10 years of effort, Leo Houlding successfully free climbed what may be one of Yosemite’s hardest routes. The Prophet climbs the east side of El Cap and links sections of existing climbs which lead to the stunning A1 Beauty crux pitch.

Houlding described the climb as “the hardest route I’ve done by miles, the A1 beauty pitch alone is the hardest thing I’ve tried.”
