DescriptionPlastic 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.
