Description

This would be a three star climb if the lower part of the face was less broken and cleaner. The last 45 feet before the summit block climb one of the best hand/fist cracks in the Flatirons as qualified aptly by George Bell

Begin at the saddle (highest point) on the East face. Work your way up past trees and a series of ledges and bulges to the base of the crack. Belay at a tree

Climb the crack past a small overhang and onto the ledge at the base of the summit block. Scramble one at a time for 30 feet to the top

Descent - rappel North some 50 overhanging feet from slings around a horn. I suggest you bring a 10 foot sling for this. Word has it there is a downclimb on the West side, but it is reputed to be scary.

Protection

Standard Flatiron rack.
