Description Suggest change

This climb is rated a classic by Gerry Roach.

Start at the low point of the East face (South side) The initial part of the climb takes place on a rock that is linked to the base of the Hillbilly.

Move up via the path of least resistance trying to stay close to the Left side of the East face. The rock is of great quality and perhaps a bit steeper than your average Flatiron scramble.

It is really easy to stray into much harder climbing if the correct path is not followed. Protection opportunities although available are sparse and dubious (thin flakes).

Descent - rappel 60' North to the ground or downclimb the North face route or the alternate descent (see comment on the North face route).

Eds. this is listed as "East Face Left" on p. 98 of Jason Haas' Climbing Boulder's Flatirons.

Standard Flatiron rack.
