|I believe this was done back in the mid-1980s. There evidence of an ascent way back then. Peace and fuk-nes, Steve S.|

Steve, the evidence you mention is likely downhill near Hypothermia.
Also worth mentioning, this route continues to the summit of the Potato Chip. From the top of P1, climb up the slab to the base of the south face. P2 climbs the 5.8 finger crack just right of Mr. Potato Head. Ascend the crack, then the face above to the summit. For a more difficult option, climb the finger crack and then move left at the obvious, angling crack system. Follow this to the summit (5.10).
Descent: rap the south face from bolts. Although the climbing may not be 4 stars, the summit is.
