Harmon Flatironette Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Current closure signage (as of 11/23/15) on trail ...
This is a small flatiron, or large flatironette, that might get more attention and traffic were it not for its rather full-season closure and its proximity to larger rocks, specifically, the Seal and Overhanging Rock. Due to its obscurity, one can be fairly certain of climbing/scrambling alone on this formation. The stone is mostly quite good, but a lack of traffic leaves it feeling less traveled, as would be expected.
The descent is a scramble down to the S/SW from the South Peak and then around the South end back to the base.
To approach, go as for The Seal and branch off as the Harmon Formation (and barred off cave) comes into view to the North (right). This formation is probably 5 minutes below the Seal, or about 35 casual minutes in all.
Climbing Season For the South area.
