Description 

The summit of this obscure rock is located some hundred feet West from the summit of the First Flatiron. It has at least a couple of routes described by Roach.


Getting There 

From the summit, this Flatironette drops South some 600 feet to the canyon between the Second and the Third Flatiron. To reach its base hike to the base of the Second Flatiron and hike up the south of it, once you have cleared the Second hike North West until you reach the base
