BETA PHOTO: taken from the west on the Royal Arch Trail
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.
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 rock falls within the spring falcon closure, I believe.
