Description

Magnificent face climbing up slightly less than vertical rock. Make sure you use the gaston edge at the top for the true top out, don't wimp out to the left.

Location

The tall face behind the pine tree that you pass on the way to the Jacked and Tan boulder. Hard to miss. It'll be on your left as you are walking down.

I have walked past this line countless times and it always intimidates me. I know that Jake, Nick, Will, etc. sent this a while back, but I don't thing anyone has done it since, and it is quite dirty.

The thing is; you can see Rapunzel's Tower from almost everywhere at Potter's Point, and it has the same magnetism that LOTR does. At least to me. One day I think I'm gonna have to do it.

A rap cleaning may be necessary first though. Feb 4, 2013

Ha, just go for it Sean, we didn't rap clean. It is not so intimidating once you are actually on it :) The rock was pretty clean when we first did it Feb 4, 2013
Ha, I will definitely echo that sentiment Sean. One of those lines that just calls to be climbed. Was starting to get myself psyched for it, but after breaking some holds off both Debra and Ballet Lessons yesterday with some exciting falls, set it on the back burner again (those holds near the very top seem a bit friable).

But damnit soon we'll just have to sack up and do it! Feb 8, 2013

You should do a ground up cleaning of the problem JB style...it's more exciting that way.

Also I remember those holds at the top being a lot more solid than they look but I guess these things do have a tendency to change around here. Just tread lightly and you'll be fine. Feb 8, 2013
Flashed it today my first time at the point. Pretty freaky on the first run but doable. Dont grab choss at the top. Apr 20, 2013
