Description:

One of the several gear routes in the Potrero. Obvious, left-angling crack right of El Sendero. An awesome feature. (20+ pitches) This route is loose and dangerous. It was retro bolted in 1999. The bolts are very run out and the pitches are very long (35 to 50 meters) so take two ropes and a good rack. The 5.10d (crux) is a funky offwidth (use caution if you try this one) also bring a stick clip for the high bolt on the crux. Catdaddy got the second ascent in 1998. The 3rd was the retro-bolt. Jon and Kirk got the 4th in 2004. Alex and Ralph in Dec of 2004.We brought 1 70 meter rope, draws and a light rack. It's safer to finish route then to bail and rap, due to tons of loose rock. Plan on climbing for 12 or so hours and biving on the summit. Get ready to be sick of off-width to chimney climbing on this one.....pitch after pitch after pitch...........THE LAST FIVE PITCHES ARE NOT BOLTED AND HAVE OLD TATTERED LINES HANGING ON THEM.

Stay off unless you like to suffer in off-width to chimney stuff mixed in with plenty of choss. This route is very dangerous and run-out. Not recomended at all. We nailed the 4th ascent in over 20 years. Second ascent by Dane Bass, and third ascent was the retro bolt.

4th ascent by Jon Gemski and Kirk (last name???).
