Description 

The namesake problem of this area is horrifying and tall, but has a flat landing. Proud, to say the least. This area also includes more tall problems in the corridor behind Rapunzel's Tower, as well as the fantastic Dan's Boulder. A wide variety of difficulty and commitment, but almost ubiquitous high quality, make this one of the best sections of Potter's.

Getting There 

Continue downhill along the main trail past the turnoffs for the Alcove. Dan's Boulder is trailside and hard to miss; it's the one with the overhanging crimp problem that leans over the trail. Rapunzel's Tower is accessed by continuing around Dan's Boulder and up to the base of a flat-topped pine tree.

The Brute V9 7C  California : Central Coast : ... : Rapunzel's Tower
Start with two slanted crimps at about head height. One hard move gets you to a high left crimp, and then a wild dyno gains you the lip. Awesome climbing with great seats for the peanut gallery. The sit start still awaits an ascent......[more]   Browse More Classics in California
