Nov 4, 2011 – Trotter and Stanhope Battling Bad Weather on The Prophet

Canadian climbing stars Sonnie Trotter and Will Stanhope are getting close to repeating The Prophet 5.13d R in Yosemite.

Canadian climbing stars Sonnie Trotter and Will Stanhope are close to repeating The Prophet 5.13d R in Yosemite. The 13-pitch route was first climbed by Leo Houlding and Jason Pickles in 2010 and includes continuous difficult climbing, which leads to the crux 35m 5.13d thin crack. Trotter and Stanhope are making excellent progress but are currently battling cold weather and possible snow conditions, which have forced them to retreat. The pair hopes the weather stabilizes long enough for them to bag the first repeat of this spectacular climb. More details here.
