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.

The Frozen Arts ascends a beautiful, slightly overhanging face on perfect edges. This is probably one of my favorites in this area!Stand start with a left hand undercling and a right hand sidepull (the start is semi-awkward). From there, stick a left hand three finger edge, follow to a great right hand edge (crux?), then hit the sloping lip (crux?), work the feet up, and hit the big shelf a few feet behind the lip, and top it out.The initial right hand sidepull is solid, but the upper part of th...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
