Description Suggest change

From the low point of the rock, head west for 300 feet. Look for a 140 foot vertical crack. The picture in Rossiter's guide book shows the route going up the wrong crack. The crack down and right in this picture is the correct one. This one of the best "crack" pitches that I have done in the Flatirons. It has great protection and good handholds.

P1: Follow this crack for 140 feet.

P2: Join the Southeast ridge route. Passing the last large roof right near the left edge will add some excitement. It is 5.6-8, depending on hieght, with great exposure. It is a little runout unless you reach above the roof to place a #3 Camalot.

Descent: scramble to the north, and rap with one rope down the gully to the west.
