Potato Slot Falls

Potato Falls in the North Fork Potato Canyon is a 30 high waterfall with 2 tiers. Corey Norman is rappelling the upper 10 tier on the left and the lower 20 tier on the right.

 

The bedrock here looks to be a brittle vertical cleaving slate... extra beautiful. Notice the cascading water-flow... this is just downstream from the high waterfall.
