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 wide opposing sloper sidepulls. Pull off the ground with some difficulty and pop to the incut pocket. Head up and left to the arete and top out. Difficult to find the proper starting position, but great fun once you do....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
