This small, undocumented Flatiron very near the Apostle offers a singular route. Due to the topograhy of the area, this rock is difficult to see on the approach as it sits in a recessed area just South of the Apostle and sheltered from view. Yet it offers a reasonably good scramble worth doing if you are in the area.
Approach as for the Apostle and continue South past the base, looking up to the SW about 100 meters from the very southernmost edge of the Apostle formation. A 100 meter wide gully separates the South side of the Apostle from the North side of Damascus. Cross the gully and go slightly uphill to find the base, as GPS is given here.
