Mike B. kickin' the Plastic Prince.
Plastic Prince is ~40' upstream of the large dirt mound that marks the start of the popular moderates "Wake Up Call" and "Continental Breakfast".
The climbing begins in a large hueco-like mini-cave capable of holding three or four medium size farm animals. Climb up and into the cave, clipping two bolts, then move right for clip three, and tug skyward toward the anchors (with three more clips along the way).
It is fun, steep, and sustained gymnastic climbing on amazing and interesting holds. This is certainly worth another star if only the route was longer.
Eight draws (includes the anchor).
Mike B. shakin' it out.

This is actually a really nice route. Mostly nice, skin-friendly jugs, with an interesting lip crux. Too bad its so short. Sadly there are many routes more polished than this.

Hey! The 2nd bolt broke on me last week. The 4th (I think it was the 4th) looks sketchy too. Be careful! I think the route needs some new hardware, but unfortunately I can't do it. Bummer, it's one of my favorite routes.

Wow, hope you're okay. I've had Plastic Prince on my rebolting to-do list.
Did the bolt itself actually break? Or did the hanger come off? How did it happen?
