Description 

Another fine route at Potter Mtn. Good protection, nice moves, and great views.

p1 10a Make a move to a pod in the left-rising crack (#3 cam). Move a bit right and up the face to a thin seam , then up to a finger crack which leads to a ledge. Make a hard move right off the ledge and continue straight up to a wide ledge and a fixed anchor. 140'

p2 5.9+ Carefully work up and left on flakes, then straight up to the top of a right-facing flake. Angle up and right to the base of a steep section in a water groove; make cool moves over this unique feature and then straight up to a fixed anchor. 120'


Location 

In the Shangri La area 50 feet right of a large boulder pile at the left end of a horizontal crack at chest height. About 50 feet up is a prominent black streak.


Protection 

The first 50-60 feet requires gear. #3 camalot, sml to med wires, and some finger sized cams. The rest of the climb is bolted including the belays. Double rope rappel.
