Description

Perhaps the loneliest of all Flatirons crags I have ever visited. No sign of human passage was noted when we arrived.
This west-facing wall lies perhaps 200 meters N/NW (uphill) along a ridge of rock contiguous with the back of the upper Summit of Shadowfax.
A few lines and potential lines are on this West Face, ranging from 50 to 80 feet in height. Since all existing lines were established onsight free solo in approach shoes, the harder looking lines were not attempted.
The rock here is surprisingly good, but loose blocks are common and the crag has seen almost no traffic, so it has been left in its original state.
To descend, no stations have been established- both parties (soloists) have climbed up the summit ridge, ascending North/Northwest, then scrambled down from the top on the West Face as it became possible. Perhaps an easier way would have been to continue on the ridge until its complete dissolution.

Getting There

From the ridge of rock behind the upper (Western) summit of Shadowfax, scramble up large talus blocks N/NW to a west-facing wall 200 meters away.
