Can't Post

In one of the SD guides awhile back, I saw a pic of someone on "prune face" -- marked as B1.

I *think* I found it today and gave it a few go's, but couldn't get past one move in the middle of the face. I'm not looking for full beta, but at least to know that I'm in the right spot, and that I'm starting it in the correct place.

Here's what I tried: large boulder West along the hillside from Big Horn. South face. When facing the climb, there is a small boulder at your back that runs the length of the larger boulder. The start I tried: almost out of reach is a small black knob -- I had a right hand on a incut dish just to the left of this knob. I matched it and threw left to a small dish. I got a high right foot and threw long for a *bad* small edge in a dish above my head.

I tried numerous sequences to get to this bad dish, but none better than the others.

Am I in the right place for Prune Face?

Thanks.
Jon
