The Questa Flatiron is a smooth-faced 230í southwest-facing granite formation above The Legs formation. In fact, the flatiron is mostly an extension of The Legs but feels separate enough to have its own name. The summit of the flatiron is a great perch offering unobscured views of the Questa Dome and surrounding area. Further adding to the satisfaction of reaching the summit of the flatiron is the fact that it involves fifth class climbing no matter how you try to tackle it.
Primary approach: Hike up the main Questa Dome trail from the parking area for about 25 minutes until you see a major talus slope/drainage on the left. Scramble up this talus slope for about 15 minutes as the talus ends and you end up hiking up sparsely vegetated soil and downed trees. Keep and eye out for cairns and a low point in the faint ridge to your right. Cross over this blocky ridge at the cairns and descend easy, grassy terrain to the base of the flatiron.
