Another rock in the third stratum of Dinosaur Mountain. This rock is located uphill from Stonehenge and downhill from Fi. It is a "tooth-like Flatiron" just west of Der Freischutz. Descent is a short downclimb the northern edge of this rock.
You can reach this rock via a hike up from Bear Canyon or down from the upper end of the Mallory Cave Trail (past Mallory Cave). From NCAR, hike to Bear Canyon, go uphill past Southern Dinosaur Egg and up just east of Stonehenge. Or, hike up the Mallory Cave Trail, past the cave, into the gully with switchbacks between the Finger Flatiron and The Box. Reach the crest between the 2nd and 3rd strata and then descend with some scrambling into this gully. Go down past Fo, Fi, and find Fee.
