East Face Left
East Face Right
This is a enjoyable small Flatiron with a decent amount of variety. It is routes from 5.5 to 5.11d, trad & sport, slab to overhanging, 1-3 pitches, sun and shade. It has even become one of the trial rocks for the reintroduction of limited, new fixed hardware (requires an application process and approval by FCC) for the Flatrions. It lies very close to the Mallory Cave Trail. However, it does apparently host a species of bats which close some of its routes each year.
From the 2006 Boulder Mountain Parks Website: For the protection of roosting Fringed Myotis Bats the following area will be CLOSED to all users from APRIL 1st to SEPTEMBER 1st:
