Description 

A collection of large potato shaped boulders provide short, pumpy sport routes. The routes tend to be steep at the bottom leading to vertical rock and most are highly pocketed. A nice area nestled in the trees, sunny in the mornings getting shady later in the day.

Getting There 

From the parking lot hike up staying straight at the first junction near the big boulder. Then trend left at the fork at the bottom of the hill. Follow the trail up past the Maltese Falcon Cliff and into the Potato Patch.
