Description 

This serenely situated formation is host to three short and sweet routes on its southwest face. All you'll need is a half dozen draws and some small TCUs and nuts to protect this trio of "restday favorites". The rock bites back a bit, but it's a worthy trade off for the stellar moves and scenic backdrop (bring the camera for this one!). The routes receive afternoon sunlight and can be rappelled to the west on a set of anchors. Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll!

In addition, there are south-facing and some non-descript East Face slab routes here.

Getting There 

Der Freischutz is located on Dinosaur Mtn. Park at NCAR Mesa and take the Mallory Cave Trail up past the Dinosuar Egg and Der Zerkle to the base of the east face slab of The Hand. Take a faint trail up a rocky and wooded gully into the corridor between The Hand (north side) and Der Freischutz (south side). When the south side opens up into a stellar view of Bear Canyon the climbs can be found above an idyllic flat boulder at the base of the southwest face. Enjoy!

South Ridge 5.0 2- 4 I 6 MM 1c  CO : Flatirons : ... : Der Freischutz
This "F3" route is one of Roach's Flatiron classics. It probably made the list due to the length of the climb, position in the canyon, and the easy climbing. I personally did not find this climb to be that enjoyable. There is some good climbing on the route, but there is a lot of bad rock and lichen. We had planned to simul-climb this route, but the up and down steps on the ridge creates a lot of rope drag. Roach says this climb is about 600ft long, but it is probably closer to 750ft.
