Description 

The Regency is the large but not very well defined rock that sits below the Royal Arch. It can be seen from Boulder, just left of the canyon that forms between the Fourth and Fifth Flatirons. From Boulder it seems that the Regency and the Royal Arch are one piece. In fact they are separated by a very small break.

The rock is good, but broken into several sections by gullies. The summit is airy (only one can fit) and provides great views of the central Flatirons.


Getting There 

To reach the base of the Regency find a faint trail leading off the Mesa trail some two hundred yards South of the Kohler Trail junction. This trail is just after the Mesa Trail comes out of the canyon in which the Tangen Spring flows. After coming out of the canyon, skirt around a small hill and find the faint trail leading up and right.

Continue up the trail, into another small canyon (left), resisting the urge to cut right until the Regency comes into view, at which point, hike up and right for some 200 feet to the base

Featured Route For The Regency
East Face of The Regency.

El Camino Royale 5.2 3 8 II 8 D 2c  CO : Flatirons : ... : The Regency
This route is more of a mountaineering adventure than a clean rock climb. Although the rating reflects an easy scramble it was extremely easy (at least for me) to stray off easy ground and onto low fifth class difficulty.Start at the lowest point of the rock on the South side of the East face, but to the right of large gully. The path seems blocked by a large overhang some 200 feet above but the route escapes this obstacle on the left. From there proceed up and left to the summit some 300 feet h...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
