  • Description 

    This rock is highly visible from the Gregory trail head. It is the large buttress dominating the view as you look West.

    More than a Flatiron, this rock is a ridge that runs North to South.

    Although the climbs on this rock are interesting, it must be noted that the quality of the rock is suspect and due to its exposure and low traffic, the North ridge sports a spectacular crop of green and black lichen

    Definitely not your carefree Flatiron scramble.

    [It may be included in bird nesting closures.]

    Getting There 

    You can approach this rock from two directions:

    North Ridge: From the Gregory trailhead take the Saddle rock trail and climb up the trail until you are under the Low point of the rock, the trail will actually trun the West side of the rock eventually. Hike up a faint and steep trail to the West side of the base of the ridge.

    South Ridge: The base of the ridge is only a few yards North of the amphitheater trail after you pass the amphitheater and the Third Pinnacle's South Ridge (see description)

    Use the North ridge approach mentioned on the rock description.Approach the lower broken section of the ridge from the West and scramble up some 50 feet until the ridge is better defined.P1- Climb up the ridge on easy but brittle and licheny ramps. After some 30-50 feet place your last piece for a while and traverse left unto the East face. Delicate face climbing among the lichen will put put you on a broken ledge. Traverse left and up and belay at a small tree with a nice hand crack on the back...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
