Description

This is a really fun route, and somewhat unique for the Flatirons. Begin just outside the entrance to the Ampitheatre at the toe of the 2nd Pinnacle. This is just off the trail. There is an obvious dark 3 foot wide chimney on the right, and a larger chimney/bowl on the left. Climb the face up into the right hand chimney. Walk along the bottom of it for a bit, then head up when it begins to constrict. This is a fun minor spelunking adventure.

Once out of the chimney, head up and slightly right. Soon you will come to a slot. Climb this, then head left about 10 or 15 feet below a steep wall, then head straight up a couple steep moves to easier rock, and then the summit.

Descend by downclimbing the NW Corner. Rossiter calls this route the Southeast Face.
