The Priest was dry when Prophesy of Drowning was soaking wet.

First big multi-pitch sea cliff, went off route and missed the first belay (~40m, not 50m as described in the book) leading to a sketchy hanging belay and an alternative pitch 2 on the face before reclaiming the route proper for the final pitch. I think that when I wasn't crapping myself if was pretty amazing. Thanks Russ.

Led 1 and 3. Very much like Prophecy without the awkward crux. No idea why it is only ** in the book.

as good as prophecy and will improve with traffic. care required on the first pitch
peter.herd - AltLd - 15/Jun/14 with Sinclair Cooper

I lead P1 and 3, and Viv, P2. I set off for Prophecy of Drowning and went off-route (like Emma and Alex who climbed before us), and so ended up in this route. Good quality nonetheless.
