Start back and to the right side of a giant wedged shape nose. Move into a full body bear hug squeeze of madness. As the wide hugging tapers to a thin point continue up and over the nose heading right or turning your back to the East at the last possible point on the line. Slap your way to the finish. Enjoy!!


Located on the upper North East slope of "The Pass." You can reach this line by following either the East or the West side of the Sisters Trail.


Pads and a spotter.

May be V7...not that I got it yet. Tread lightly on the left hand start hold, it's crumbling.… Apr 26, 2010

Cool video, Jon!! That's so fun to watch!!! The biz of the Prince is gaining and topping after all those other moves. But you may be right?? V7 may be its future??? As it sees more traffic and the top out cleans up more and more, I could see the difficulty rating change but still a real fun line.

By the way, Jon, another great new line I just F.A.'ed this year and as far as I know it has no 2nd ascents that I know of yet that is even better than the Prince, I think. If you were looking at the nose of the Prince, the new line would be behind you and up the hill to your left.

Any way... the new line is called "The Greater illusion" and I think it may be about V8 or so. You should check it out, man. I would love to meet you out at The Sisters to check it out sometime. I'm a videographer and would love to video that line with you if you could dig it!!!! Nice work!! You will send very soon I can tell!!! May 2, 2010

One of the best climbs at 3 Sisters. Some of the best rock and movement. IMHO, there are no easy moves, and it isn't over until you are on top. Great work, Luke! Thanks for your vision and hard work at 3 Sisters.

Hoping to take this down soon. It looks and feels like the crimp broke a bit, but I'm finally hitting it consistently. Super classic, strong problem. Nov 29, 2014
