Description

Dead center in the line your rope falls down is the climb. The crux is about 20 feet up. You'll be underclinging a crack and have to reach up to two small holds. Once you get above that it's smooth sailing. You reach a very large ledge and then do a fun boulder problem finish to the anchors. In the summer this route is very hot. But in the winter it is warm there making it a great climb when its cold out.

Protection

To set up the TR walk around back and scramble up to the top. Here you can use the tree, and a few cracks to set up your anchor. A cam and a #7 nut will fit nicely in the crack.

Did the middle route and also tried the route to the right. The undercling wasn't in my opinion the crux but after the boulder problem at the end you have to stand up in front of a sloping wall and move up to the left. Jun 23, 2009

Just did this climb on a wim while visiting The Flatirons and Flagstaff. It was very sequency in the beginning and the last few moves are very fun. The big ledge in the middle is what takes away from it. Jun 23, 2008

Did this route yesterday and enjoyed it. It got a bomb rating, but if up at Flagstaff and feel like climbing instaed of bouldering give it a try. Quick easy set up for TR, get back to the bottom, climb it, and be able to clean up the anchor and do something else up at Flagstaff easily. Fun place to be on a cooler, sunny day. Apr 28, 2003
