Description 

Potato Rock's slightly overhanging south face and slabby west face have a few very good boulder problems. The rock quality is very good, and the landing is for the most part very good as well.

The southwest arete has a large block that is loose but solid where it lies. Of the two problems I climbed near it, none of them actually used this particular block, so it shouldn't be an issue. Just be aware of it.

Getting There 

It lies south of the area's main cluster of boulders. For better details, reference the page map.

Stand start with a left hand sidepull and a right hand on the arete. From there, make a few easy moves by bumping the right hand up the arete and the left hand up to a perfect sidepull, at that point, paste a high foot, hit the sloping lip, then work the left hand through some poorly angled intermediate edges to reach a great edge and top it out.This one gets tougher the higher you climb....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
