Description [Suggest Change]

In the back of the Gregory Canyon Amphitheater, next to the Inside South Face, you will see series of 3 holds, the top-most being perhaps 15' off of the ground and triangular in shape. Getting to this hold is the first crux. From there, head up and slightly left on descent holds in a B-line for the left-facing corner system. The second crux lies in the corner system, which is not as good as it looks.

Optionally, the whole thing can be climbed even further left or right, and depending upon your wanderings the grade will vary.

Protection [Suggest Change]

According to Rossiter's Flatirons guide, this route had never seen a free ascent, but the rock does seem solid enough to headpoint. You could get a few pieces in, but the low crux would be very rough and hazardous. The higher crux merely dubious - better be sure.

Best of all, just TR it.

The upper corner is indeed not as good as it looks. Still better than whatever finish I ended up on for the route to the right though.

These two routes made me chuckle, but I can't say I could recommend them to someone I actually like. Aug 16, 2017
