Description

This long, narrow Flatiron is located immediately north of The Hand and Mallory Cave. In 2001, the East Face of this crag was closed from Spring to late Fall to protect bats.
Temporary Trail and Raptor Closures Details

Getting There

The base of the East Face rises above the end of the Mallory Cave Trail. The easiest way to reach all other faces is to continue on the trail past Mallory Cave as it climbs south of The Box. When you get almost as high as the summit of the Finger Flatiron, the trail forks, take the left fork and walk south into the gully behind (west of) the Finger Flatiron. To get off the summit, rap 60' northwest from slings.

Getting there: To clarify the "going past Mallory Cave" part of the directions, turn right at the trail fork at the sign that says, "To Dinosaur Mtn upper climbing areas." Going left here as per the "To Mallory Cave" sign leads to the dead end at the cave closure. May 4, 2014
