Description [Suggest Change]

Start in the corner, moving onto the right wall at some obvious holds. Climb the arete (crux) to a stance under an overhang. Move a little right to a crack in the overhang and place some small but solid gear. Pull the overhang (10a) and up a short slab to a fixed anchor. The lower section, while not long, is technical and continuous.

Location [Suggest Change]

At the right end of the main cliff at Potash, look for an obvious arete with three bolts.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Three bolts to start, a small cam (I think I used a yellow Alien) and a nut, and a #3 Camalot. Sometimes there is a fixed nut in place before the final slab to supplant the Camalot.
It may be a good idea to stick clip the first bolt as the landing is not ideal if you blow the clip.
