For all intents and purposes, I did the FA on this, and named it, and no one else did it the day I did it first. Shawn got the photo of me after the first was done.
(Ron, you need to ask Rick about this.)
Quoted from a message to me by Rick Allenby on Facebook: "Just to let you know....I let Ron know that his recollection on the FA of Prune Face was not right. I did it a few times but...it was not on your heels on the day of the FA. I would have remembered that day." Sep 2, 2017

Mike, it's great to see you commenting here. If I had established this problem I would want to set the record straight too. It is a 5 star classic.
If you're not into crack climbing or thin face, and want to do a "bouldery" problem with some actual holds, don't miss it. Dec 16, 2017
