Harmon Flatironette Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Current closure signage (as of 11/23/15) on trail ...
This is a small flatiron, or large flatironette, that might get more attention and traffic were it not for its rather full-season closure and its proximity to larger rocks, specifically, the Seal and Overhanging Rock. Due to its obscurity, one can be fairly certain of climbing/scrambling alone on this formation. The stone is mostly quite good, but a lack of traffic leaves it feeling less traveled, as would be expected.
The descent is a scramble down to the S/SW from the South Peak and then around the South end back to the base.
To approach, go as for The Seal and branch off as the Harmon Formation (and barred off cave) comes into view to the North (right). This formation is probably 5 minutes below the Seal, or about 35 casual minutes in all.

: ... : Harmon Flatironette
Follow the blunt South arete to the top of the cliff, staying within an arms reach of it. This route feels more "5th class" in some sections than others, and the subgrade I have given reflects the overall feel of it. There may be a slightly harder move here or there. The rock is cleaner, less broken, and is more exposed than the standard 'East Face South Side' 4th class slab....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
