|West Ridge - part F - The Potato Chip
This is a fun, moderate crack that is worth doing if you are in the area, but it is not worth the hike as a destination climb. The protection is good throughout and the climbing is interesting on the steep and well-featured wall.
This is on the far left side of the buttress located below and to the southwest of the Potato Chip. Idaho Express climbs the obvious crack system to the left of Poor Man's Wendego. Rap from a tree with slings at the top.
The Potato Chip looks like Pac Man from here!

New slings and rappel ring on tree at top. That's the only good thing to say about this pitch. Lots of loose rock. The Potato Chip is further from the top of West Ridge than you think....
