Description

This boulder is a popular warm-up area located on the eastern edge of Lower Chaos, close to the lower lake below Lake Haiyaha. It is the second formation you will encounter after the walk in. It is easily identified by a long, slightly overhanging north face and a deep gully on the west end, on the right as you face the wall. The Potato Chip (V7, sds V8 or 9) climbs an obvious series of crimps out of the gully. Other nondescript problems can be found on the wall to the left.

Getting There

Follow the usual approach to Lower Chaos, rockhop along the edge of the lower lake, pass the Warm-Up Boulder heading west and The Potato Chip will show up on the left shortly.

Does anyone know the name of the boulder directly SW of the Potato Chip Boulder? You know, the short, gently overhanging one with the top-out through the tree branches...thanks in advance. Aug 24, 2009
