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.

Start sitting with good holds. Make an easy move to a cool pocket hold, then make a tough move over the lip. Head up and left along the arete on some holds that defy logic (some that you swear will break are bulletproof, others that look solid break easily). Top out once you hit the apex of the arete.Great movement on some of the coolest looking rock around....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
