Clip the first couple of bolts on Plastic Prince, then move left to reach a right-leaning weakness and follow this past more bolts to the top.

Per John Byrnes: even though this is a long boulder problem rather than a climb, it is quite worthy having surprisingly good movement and sequences! Climb the first section of Plastic Prince, then strike out left. Make powerful, dynamic, fun moves through the overhang, then angle left on a wide variety of good holds.


5 or 6 bolts plus the anchor.

Per John Byrnes: 7 new glue-in bolts plus steel biners at the anchor (courtesy of Jeff Achey, thanks Jeff!).
