Description

This rock is also know as Yodeling Moves due to the route found on the rock. The east ridge is 400 feet long and ends to north of the large summit block that extends to the south. This summit block is overhanging on all sides, but does alow passage by the "Yodeling Moves" route (5.0) on its west face. The route also contains Boulder's longest arch, which you climb over on the ridge line. This is a Flatiron classic!

Getting There

Follow the Royal Arch trail to the top of the switchbacks. As you head down the trail, you will pass a trailhead on the left and a base of a Flatiron on the right (~150 feet). 25 feet beyond this point, a faint trail heads to the west for 50 feet to the base of the climb. The "hammerhead" summit should be obvious.
