Description 

Potato Patch #1 is comprised of two boulders. The shorter one to the right has Extra Wasabi Please and This Spud's For You. Bucket Brigade climbs the taller boulder to the left.

The first bolt is quite high and the moves are not easy. Have your belayer spot, but more importantly, don't fall. Then climb some low angle terrain heading up and right. A juggy flake and tightly spaced bolts finish out the overhang.

The overhang at the end is quite fun, but the first half of the route kind of blows.

Protection 

5 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap.

The juggy finish is pretty fun. The start is good for keeping your attention, if not quality-wise.
