Description

This is a 400 foot route of which the first 50 feet prove to be the crux.

Start at the bottom of the face up a smooth, unprotected mossy and licheny slab (5.6 s). After this section, the climbing eases and protection appears.

This section can be avoided by starting the climb further up on the South (left side of the face) and traversing to the center.

After this, romp up easy rock to a ledge with broken blocks. Scramble left through the blocks and up another 100 foot section of slab to reach the summit.

Descent - scramble West onto another large boulder, and JUMP across a gap onto a boulder that is in hiking territory.

Protection

Standard Flatiron rack.

Did this solo today. This route could be fun, but the lichen sort of ruined it for me. I agree with Brian C - one of the scarier Flatiron solos. I actually bailed about 80% up. Oct 22, 2016

Maybe the start had me freaked out, but this was one of the more scary solos I've had in the Flatirons in quite a while. Maybe I should have brought climbing shoes for this one. I have to admit that climbing over the giant gash right before the summit was pretty awesome, but it's doubtful I'll repeat this one. Aug 9, 2016

After a brief, dirty start, the route quickly becomes more solid and easier than the given name/grade implies. Aug 24, 2014
