Hobo's exposed summit has good views of Satan's Sl...

The base of the Hobo is cluttered with fallen blocks. The largest of these leans against the East face. You can scramble up this block and down the other side onto the East face or just climb up to the notch between them.

From there, it is some easy 100+ ft of enjoyable, solid rock, Flatiron scrambling.

The summit is small and exposed, the views of Stairway and Satan's Slab are hard to beat.

Descent - Downclimb the route you just climbed.


Standard Flatiron Rack

Why is there no rating for this route?
4th class I guess. Much easier than Hillbilly and no problem down climbing.
