This rock is also know as Yodeling Moves due to the route found on the rock. The east ridge is 400 feet long and ends to north of the large summit block that extends to the south. This summit block is overhanging on all sides, but does alow passage by the "Yodeling Moves" route (5.0) on its west face. The route also contains Boulder's longest arch, which you climb over on the ridge line. A Flatiron classic!
Follow the Royal Arch trail to the top of the switch backs. As you head down the trail, you will pass a trail head on the left and a base of a Flatiron on the right (~150 feet). 25 feet beyond this point, a faint trail heads to the west for 50 feet to the base of the climb. The "hammerhead" summit should be obvious.

Once at this notch climb down a bit and off the rock. At this point you have several options, one is call it quits, another is ascend the north face via a short 5.7 pitch,, and the other and probably best option is to go ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
