Description 

Flat Top is the first rock above Bette's Needles, with the obvious flat top. Once on the plateau, a simple boulder problem gains the summit.

Getting There 

Hike out to burma road, once at the canal, take the climbers trail up to the right. Hike up the hill till you see the rock with the flat top, split by a chimney.

Take the ramp up the downhill side of Flat Top to gain access to the chimney. Rock quality in the chimney is close to perfect, with only a couple spots of obvious crumbly rock that are easily avoided. Very short rap off the west side to descend. Rap rings on both anchors if I recall correctly.Great views of the park make the hike worth it, assuming minimally protected chimneys are your thing....[more]   Browse More Classics in Oregon
