This is a good climb on good rock, but as there is so much of that on the various East Faces of the various Flatirons, it is hard to say much of a short pitch on a small formation. This is one for the summit-tickers.

Hike North off of the trail along the East Face from the south end of the formation until all bulges and loose rock are passed. Several options will present themselves, but one stands out near the tallest point of the rock. The climbing is solid and high friction - head up to the top on scoops and bumps.

To descend, scramble northward on the ridge to a slot facing north, down that past a tree and to the ground on the North side of the West face.


This route lies on the East Face of the formation, no more than 50 meters North of where the rock meets a switchback on the trail.


Maybe a bit here and there, but most people solo it.

The obvious rib is the easiest way to the top. If you want to introduces someone to 4th class scrambling, I couldn't think of a better place.

This is a fantastic place for kids. There are great places to set up TR anchors, the top is a true summit with great views and large hangout area, the staging area is right off the trail, and the bottom is a gentle grass filled gully, very safe. There are lots of options to set up a TR from 4th to maybe 5.5. I chose to belay from the top, but there are definitely opportunities to find half rope length ground belays.

There are some hazards for children. There are some cactus to watch out for and potential for poison ivy, there is a lot on the trail coming in.

Approach with 3 kids from age 7 to 9 was 30 minutes with 3 stops. Oct 17, 2016

Nice, mellow, featured slab with 4th class and easy 5th class options. Possible to scramble up gully, headed NW toward top, traverse south 20 feet, and set up a top rope anchor by slinging the large flake next to the pine tree. Nice place to take kids just starting climbing, assuming they are happy to hike in. May 13, 2016
