Description

Follow the blunt South arete to the top of the cliff, staying within an arms reach of it. This route feels more "5th class" in some sections than others, and the subgrade I have given reflects the overall feel of it. There may be a slightly harder move here or there. The rock is cleaner, less broken, and is more exposed than the standard 'East Face South Side' 4th class slab.

Location

This route ascends the very South edge of the Harmon Flatironette. Go South to the South edge of the SW Slab, perhaps 30 meters SW of the Cave entrance, on the "deeper" inset level of the Flatironette. Walk uphill slightly around the blunt South arete to a point where you can step onto the rock, perhaps 5 meters below the lowest point, just above a small downed tree.

The system kicked me out in the middle of 'creating' this route. Here are the details:

Just tried out this route. Sporting a head cold along with ice melting on the arete made it a little extra fun. Most of the 5th class seemed to occur between the start and the large boulder chunk resting about 15 or 20 meters up near the arete. Probably best as a solo climb, but I had a partner, so we roped up. Gear used (in order): #6 stopper, double runner (girth hitched just below a loose block - solid placement though), #2 Camalot, red Tricam. Enjoyable climb but lots of lichen as one would expect for seldom traveled Flatiron formation. Nice views from summit. There is a nice comfortable belay from large horn below summit. Jan 19, 2014
