  • Description 

    This small pinnacle is quite prominent from the Royal Arch Trail as it climbs up Bluebell Canyon. It is the southernmost pinnacle on the south side of the Third Flatiron. The East Face is narrow, and rises up from a slab into a series of small overhangs. From the east the pinnacle has a distinctive, hammer-head shape.


    Getting There 

    Leave the Royal Arch Trail at about its closest approach to the pinnacle, drop down and cross Bluebell creek (nasty bushwhacking) and scramble up to the base of the east face. To reach the west side, scramble up an easy gully west of the pinnacle.

    This is a great, short route on the east face of the small pinnacle at the south end of the Third Flatiron. This route can likely be done in one pitch, but the zig-zagging would give nasty drag (unless using double ropes, or skip clipping the belay bolt). All bolts on this route are bomber 3/8", probably not the originals.Begin at a tree on the north side of the east face which is north of a two foot overhang on the lower east face.

    This rock falls within the spring falcon closure, I believe.
