Description 

Boulder problems near the top of the trail at the Flatiron/Monster area. A few classics, and some hard problems, including the Zipper, a classic highball, FA done prior to pads.


Getting There 

Up the CCC trail. Before the top of the bluff and the rope climbs, the next cliff band down. At the top of a steep set of rock stairs, you will encounter the Little Flatiron, a Gill problem.
