  • Description 

    This long, narrow Flatiron is located immediately north of The Hand and Mallory Cave. In 2001, the East Face of this crag was closed from Spring to late Fall to protect bats.


    Getting There 

    The base of the East Face rises above the end of the Mallory Cave Trail. The easiest way to reach all other faces is to continue on the trail past Mallory Cave as it climbs south of the Box. When you get almost as high as the summit of the Finger Flatiron, the trail forks, take the left fork and walk south into the gully behind (west of) the Finger Flatiron. To got off the summit, rap 60' northwest from slings.

    The climb has two distinct sections with the lower face being about 5.7 with the most difficult moves coming at the shallow, left-facing corner at the end of the starting ramp. The upper section of the climb is the obvious dihedral, which starts in the slab directly above Monodoigt. Climb through bulging rock on some fun crystals and pockets to get established at the base of the dihedral. A combination of stemming and layback moves gets you to a rest position on the left arete half way up the d...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
