Description 

The Couch Potatoes are 300 foot tall blobs of low angle granite that look like a couple sitting together. The routes are of moderate difficulty, and the quality of the handholds, especially the aplitic dikes and phenocrysts, are comparable to the Cathedral Peak granite of Tuolumne Meadows fame.

Getting There 

Use the same approach as for Sunshine Dome. These domes are passed along the way.
