FI is found on the third tier of rocks high on Dinosaur Mountain. There are a few document trad routes on the east and south faces. FI is found in the row of rock called FEE, FI, FO, and FUM. Where FEE is the southernmost and FUM is the northernmost rock.

Getting There

There a few ways to get up to the third tier of rocks. The way I have approached in the past is by following a faint trail on the south side of the Finger Flatiron. This involves some scrambling and a few fun chimmey moves to get through a hole. Also, check out the direction on the "FO" description for a different approach.

We added some more slings and a locking biner on 10/4/2003. We got all the way down to the east with a 60m rope. Oct 5, 2003

Tony, We looked for Hi Fi Fun, (5.8) also, and all we saw was that climb you added as "Third Times the Charm." Confusing description in the rossiter book we had or something.Maybe further around to the south or something?? Jun 13, 2003

Anybody know the details on "Hi Fi Fun, (5.8)" ??? According to Rossiter it's a proposed 5.8 going 60 vetical feet up huecos and a thin crack on the S face to join the slab.I looked for such a beast, but the only thing obvious I saw was a steep odd crack perhaps 80 fett up the hill, just above where a massive boulder leans against the Fi wall. It felt at least 5.10 to me and lacked any sign of prior passage. No way in hell anybody could mistake it for a 5.8. Anybody know history on that line? Jun 10, 2003

I placed a fully redundant threaded anchor (solid) up on the top of this flatiron on 6/8/03 and it is now rappable. This will be difficult to tie and untie and I was out of rap rings. If you do this rock, please consider taking up a rapid link or two to add to the webbing and make this rap anchor durable for long term-use.From this rap anchor, you can get to the ground of the N Gully with a 70M rope or maybe a hop of just a few feet with a 60M.
