  • Description 

    This large Flatiron sits near the top of Dinosaur Mountain. It is to the North of the Finger Flatiron and to the East of Fum. It is home of some amazing sport climbs on its North and South sides such as Cornucopia (on the South "Scoop Wall") and of some more moderate trad climbs.


    Getting There 

    Follow the Mallory Cave trail past the cave turn off and continue up. As the trail starts to switchback, you will be working your way between the North face of the Finger Flatiron and The Box. You can reach The Box from any of these switchbacks depnding on the route you are aiming for.

    Cornucopia 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E6 6c  CO : Flatirons : ... : The Box
    Just left of Discipline, Cornucopia starts at the top a huge detached block and follows a line of bolts up a gorgeous lichen streaked wall. The climbing on this route is brilliantly thin, technical, and continuous. Unfortunately, most of the bolts are very hard to reach until the draws are hanging. For this reason, I recommend that you stick clip the first bolt, since a fall before you reach the first bolt could result in serious or fatal injuries. After establishing on the wall...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
