Climb the thin crack system and pull up under the roof utilizing some side pulls (crux). Pull the roof (2nd crux) and continue to anchors on the right wall.
The moves are aesthetic, and you can find some great rests, a great route.
Although it certainly won't compare to longer classic routes, it is definitely one of the best on wall street.
This route is located about 50 feet right of Top Forty in a highly chalked left facing dihedral with a thin crack system, and a roof about 2/3 of the way up.
There is a chalked up flake to the left that leads to the same anchors, Potash Bong Hit, a top rope climb.
A set of camalots to a number 3, small pieces (tcu's) are helpful, and a set of nuts. Draws to extend pieces below the roof.

This is a quality climb and can be climbed in the rain (see photo) as well as Potash Bong Hit(5.9) which starts just 15 feet left and shares the same achors as Static Cling. Potash Bong Hit is worth doing and protects fairly well even though some guide books call it a top rope. See Potash Bong Hit on this website for more details.

For me, the key gear were a #0 and #00 TCU (purple + grey). These can protect the crux moves below and through the small roof.

Great route, not to be missed on Wall Street. Good gear, great movement.
