Prime fall climbing.


pitch one 5.7-Climb the corner to a horizontal dike. Mantel the dike and continue up and left to a large sloping ledge.

pitch two 5.9+-This pitch is quite good with cruxy moves right off the ledge. Nice edges and good friction characterize the climbing. Follow the line of bolts for 100 feet to the shared anchor with Stop Making Sense. 100 foot rap.


At the far left end of the Shangri-La area. Pitch one starts off the right end of a tree covered terrace to the left of Poker Face.


#1 camalot and yellow alien for p1

Pitch two is one of the finest pitches at Potter. Well, except for all the other super amazing pitches at Potter.

Easily one of my favorite pitches of off-vert in the park. Super super fun. just get on it, you will be pleased. The bolt spacing is great, one where you need it every time but just a touch of runout at the top to keep you on your toes a bit, as is necessary for an ADK classic. (the climbing is mad easy at the "runout" don't fret that I said that word)
