Description

An excellent, new addition to Shelf, this route is only slightly squeezed in (as compared to other routes of this era).

Begin just right of Precious Stone, climbing up to the ledge and the first bolt. Traverse right to the rounded arete, presumably avoiding the big column out right. Head up the prow with some difficult slaps to a great rest at mid-height. A massive pocket provides some good underclinging possibilities, and sequential pockets and a mono head up to easier ground and the anchors. This route is a bit contrived. One could probably stem to the right wall at numerous spots, but if you put on your 'Shelf blinders' this is a great route on perfect rock.

Location

100 feet north of the Family Jewels section is a clean wall with 2 bolted routes. Potato Chipper is the right route on this wall.

Protection

Bolts to 2 BA.
