Climb the relatively low angle face with edges, flakes, and occasional pockets, past a small, left-facing corner and over a small overlap to steeper terrain. Climb into a corner where the first crux is encountered. Slither your way up the corner to easier climbing and the final crux pulling the overhang with a hard-to-find sequence that once you find it gives you an "ah-ha" moment. Finish with a few moves of easy terrain to the anchor.


Small Fry is on the right side of what is often referred to as the Potato Wall, due to the route names given. Small Fry is 25 feet right of the 5.7, Do the Mashed Potato. Look for the glue-in bolts.


13 glue-in bolts and anchor.
