Per George Bracksieck: The 1st, 2nd and 3rd pinnacles are NOT closed for raptor nesting.
More than a Flatiron, this rock is a ridge that runs North to South.
Although the climbs on this rock are interesting, it must be noted that the quality of the rock is suspect and due to its exposure and low traffic, the North ridge sports a spectacular crop of green and black lichen
Definitely not your carefree Flatiron scramble.
[It may be included in bird nesting closures.]
North Ridge: From the Gregory trailhead take the Saddle rock trail and climb up the trail until you are under the Low point of the rock, the trail will actually trun the West side of the rock eventually. Hike up a faint and steep trail to the West side of the base of the ridge.
South Ridge: The base of the ridge is only a few yards North of the amphitheater trail after you pass the amphitheater and the Third Pinnacle's South Ridge (see description)
