Description [Suggest Change]
The Umbrella Tree is a nice afterwork or winter climb. Easy access to the summit for anchors make this a great top rope. There are some good 5.10s and a 5.8 on the left side that ascends a gully. It's really like a tough face climb that in the middle has a large ledge that turns into a very fun boulder problem. In the summer, the rock is just too hot to climb in the afternoon. But, in the fall and winter the rock is superb for climbing. It's on Flagstaff so expect great friction.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
To get to the Umbrella Tree (aka little flatiron) park at the Crown Rock parking lot. Walk down hill past the Monkey Traverse and in about 200 yards you will see the base of the climb. You can ascend the gully to between it and another face with a fun crack on it. Boulder up the back side, and use the tree and some nuts and cams for TR anchors.
