Description

This Flatiron is located about 300 yards south of the Royal Arch. The east face is ~300 feet long and has a noticeable water groove in the center of the face that heads to the "gash" in the summit. This gash leads you to a faint trail that heads down to the base on the south side of the flatiron. This Flatiron offers a fun scramble along the water groove, which has huge buckets. A harder climb is found on the left side of the face.

Getting There

This Flatiron is probably best aproached by climbing the Anomaly, but you can hike to the base by going around the south side of that Flatiron. Pass the Royal arch on the west side and follow a faint trail due south until you bump into the Anomaly. Scramble down to the base of the Anomaly, climb it or conitnue on to the base of the Amoeboid.

Shad, that would be a really odd combo.

I think you meadn Regency to Royal arch to the Anomoly, to Ameoboid, in that order. One can also continue further onward, subsequently enchaining the Hourglass and the Hippo Head. May 31, 2010
Super fun paddling! A good combo is the Regency to the Anomaly to this one to Royal Arch. May 1, 2003
Another relatively easy way to reach this rock is to head due north through the trees from the top of Stairway to Heaven. Dec 12, 2001
