JB sighting in the crimp.


Pretty cruxy all the way. Slightly overhung, very fingery, maybe a touch harder than SENTENCED. Most holds are full pad with a few exceptions. Good moves, 2.5 stars.


On the right side of the SENTENCED wall, two routes start from a narrow ledge about 6 feet off the ground. Finger Prince is the right-hand of the two routes.


6 bolts + chains.

Great name for a devious route. It is crimpy and sequential with the best move halfway up. More sustained on smaller holds than Sentenced to Hang but not quite as steep. Probably a letter harder than Sentenced...

I think this is at least 1 if not 2 letter grades harder than sentenced. But I only did both on toprope(very poorly maybe), so maybe my judgement doesn't mean much.

Finger Prince is not quite as pumpy as Sentenced, but it's more technical. Once you've worked out the moves you'll find it's really only one letter grade harder that Sentenced.
P.S. You should be leading this one too.

This thing is indeed crimpy and sharp. However, there are some really great, balancy moves up top that make it worth all of the pain.
