This climb is a well-protected, fun Flatirons climb. Start at the left side of the east face and head straight up a left-facing dihedral that forms one side of a shallow gully. Cross over the gully when the pro gets thin and head up the face to a belay stance about 25 feet below the south facing arete that goes to the summit. Tackle the arete, cross a crevice, move out onto the east face and head for the summit.

Variation: from the crevice, head west and corkscrew around the summit block via some cramped moves under an overhang on the west reminiscent of Cozyhang on The Dome.

Descent: scramble to the northernmost point on the summit and head west to a gully that leads to top of the saddle between Fo amd Fum. From the summit, it looks like a steep downclimb, but it's not. Cross the gully and head up the west side of Fum and through a hole behind Fum's west face. Hike down along the north side of Fum. You can also descend the gully between Fo and Fum, but it supposedly requires some 5.4 downclimbing.


A standard rack--some extra big pieces (#4 Camalot, #11 Hex). Pro is abundant for a Flatiron climb.
