Description 

We put this up yesterday. Climb the perfect handcrack that is Potash Bonghit, then traverse left on good edges (for Potash) that don't all aim the way you'd like. It was gonna be much longer, but something important broke... so its stopped as is.


Location 

This route climbs the handcrack and face between Static Cling and Skeletonic.


Protection 

Four #3 friends and 3 quickdraws.

Fun movement on good rock. Just wish it were a bit longer.

Great climb. The starting crack (same as Potash Bong Hit) is pure fun and then the face moves out left are sustained, delicate, and beautiful. I guessed 5.11 b/c--glad to see others agree.

Great route, seems like it might have lost a foot for the initial traverse from the crack onto the face. The opening moves on the face seem harder than 11 b/c, considering the cross through and lack of feet.
