The Second Flatiron rests between the much more imposing First and Third Flatirons. It is much neglected and only sees a small fraction of the traffic that its more stately neighbors get. However, it is the home of several classic flatiron scrambles of considerable length, and is well worth a visit. Be sure to sample Freeway, Dodge Block, and Free for All - Flatiron Classics by any measure.
From the ranger cottage at Chautauqua Park follow the Chautauqua trail to the Flatirons Loop Trail. Follow this trail about 2/10 of a mile south to the Second/Third Flatiron trail. This trail leads directly to the bottom of the north side of the Second Flatiron. The approach takes approximately half an hour.

This novelty variation makes the otherwise forgetable Dodge Block route worth repeating with a short bit of cool tunneling beneath a mini arch. The arch is visible from Freeway and from pitch two of Dodge Block (also pictured on page 46 of the Fixed Pin guidebook).Follow the Dodge Block route for two 60m pitches to the tree even with the foot of the Pullman Car. Rather than bailing out right towards Freeway, continue straight up to the apex of the groove. Pass a pair...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
