This long traverse is a Flatirons anomaly in that it moves left to right instead of vice versa. It can be found in the large east-west running gully which splits the left (south) side of the 2nd Flatiron.

Your best approach is as follows: Take the 2nd and 3rd Flatiron approach trail to the fork at the lower Satellite boulders where the 2nd Flatiron trail heads right and leads directly to the base of the 2nd Flatiron. You can either scramble about 150-200 feet up this face (5.0) then cut left or go left into the gully beside the Flatiron and cut back right past an enormous capstone boulder to access the Yarbles.

The Yarbles traverse is on the north-facing wall above the steep, brushy landing (many ferns) on the south side of the gully. Begin in good huecos and cruise right another 70 feet, passing numerous crux sections en route to a pumpy finish (I stayed low but with a spotter you could go high onto pebbles).


A crash pad.
