Description 

This is a good climb on good rock, but as there is so much of that on the various East Faces of the various Flatirons, it is hard to say much of a short pitch on a small formation. This is one for the summit-tickers.

Hike North off of the trail along the East Face from the south end of the formation until all bulges and loose rock are passed. Several options will present themselves, but one stands out near the tallest point of the rock. The climbing is solid and high friction - head up to the top on scoops and bumps.

To descend, scramble northward on the ridge to a slot facing north, down that past a tree and to the ground on the North side of the West face.

Location 

This route lies on the East Face of the formation, no more than 50 meters North of where the rock meets a switchback on the trail.

Protection 

Maybe a bit here and there, but most people solo it.

Nice, mellow, featured slab with 4th class and easy 5th class options. Possible to scramble up gully, headed NW toward top, traverse south 20 feet, and set up a top rope anchor by slinging the large flake next to the pine tree. Nice place to take kids just starting climbing, assuming they are happy to hike in.
