Description

Walk into the corridor between Cyclops Rock and the Potato Head formation. The route is on the left side of the Potato Head's west face. It's a left-slanting crack with the cruxy finish. Be forewarned that after topping out, you must walk back from the edge about twenty feet before finding a crack suitable for an anchor. Walk south, descending a slab to reach the ground.

Protection

Small to medium cams, or medium nuts.

Short, low angle, good practice for placing gear for a new leader. I liked it all right. At the top, though, I didn't have the right gear for an anchor, so it was a bomber stance. Worked out OK. Mar 12, 2008

A so-so climb, but not a bomb. Half a star out of five. Dec 3, 2004
