Not as loose as the name suggests, though it once was.
Start up the steep pocketed slab and trend right to enter the black groove in the steeper rock above. Up this using the occasional disposable hold until the polish of Pothole Wall is reached. Finish up this. Low in the grade.

This route should lose its 'loose' icon - it was a bit dirty, but not unstable. However, given that it shares the same finish as Pothole Wall - a pitch (justifiably) graded at a technical 5a - then an overall grade of 4c is clearly an error. I'd put it at VS, 5a*
