Description 

The Upper Deviation looks like a miniature version of the 3rd Flatiron and many have probably noticed it. Few venture up to explore, and descriptions like this one do not tempt many more.

The rock on this formation is friable. There is little reason to visit this crag unless you are trying to do every route in Gerry Roach's guide! Or want to get away from it all.

Getting There 

Climb upward from the Lower Deviation.

A short second pitch climbs north out of the notch and back onto the east face to the summit.The first pitch is more of a high-angle gully than a pure chimney. It is unusual and receives a star for this....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
