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.
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.
