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