Description Suggest change

Approach as for the Potato Chip. Once at the knifeblade SW edge of the Potato Chip, look 25' left to an obvious arete. Climb past some marginal rock afor about 15 feet to the arete from the left. Climb the arete, first from the left, then to the right, switching back left after a horizontal nearly at the top.

This pitch protects every 10' or so, predominantly in good solid horizontals. Double ropes could be useful, but are by no means necessary. It was done first on a single rope and many 2' runners to avoid drag.

To descend, walk north past several false summit blocks (2 visible, then 1 hidden block). From the third black, cut back hard left (S/SW) to a pine tree and walk/scramble down the ridge to the trail near the base again. This takes ~ 2 minutes.

Protection Suggest change

One full set of cams, from .5" to 3.5" Additional pieces might be useful, but not required for a safe lead.
