Sizing up the move to the crimp


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.


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


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.
