DescriptionThe Potato Routes portion of the Ice Caves Wall has long been a popular wall for moderate routes and features old classics like Merry Maids. This subarea includes routes Vortex to Small Fry.
Getting ThereThis area is most often accessed from the Feline parking area which is found 0.6 mile from the park entrance station. The parking area is a large pullout on the left (west) side of the road, immediately across the creek from the obvious chalk-streaked Feline route. To access the Potato routes, cross the bridge and head down canyon, passing the gray cave where Chud resides and the Funny Face. The barren belay zone below Do the Mashed Potato is obvious after passing through the vegetation.
Alternatively, you can hike Koper's Trail from the Lower Ice Caves area to access these routes.
