Huge jugs on a super steep face. Pumpiest 5.8 I've ever climbed!


East face of Potato Patch #5 (per Mammoth Area Rock Climbs). A large boulder lies beneath the start and makes for a great belay seat and clean shoe changeover station.

Gets p.m. shade


4 bolts + Mussy hook anchors

Steep and juggy throughout with the crux perhaps choosing the best pockets as you move upwards; take care with the flake at the top that's used to clip the anchors.

good route, tricky for the grade. First bolt it a bit high, so be careful or stick it.
