On June 1st, Dead Point Magazine announced that Nick Berry was the third climber to complete The Prophet, the 500 metres, 5.13d line set up by Leo Houlding in 2010, on El Cap. After the second ascent by Sonnie Trotter and Will Stanhope, Nick is the next to enter the empyrean of the few that have freed the difficult route. Exactly for this reason, his companion Madeleine Sorkin changed his nickname from Wonderboy to The Propheteer.
