  • Description 

    This is a really cool boulder right at the base of the First Flatiron. It has one of the shortest hikes to good bouldering in the Flatirons. The routes are really good, and the setting is awesome.

    Getting There 

    Hike up the main trail to the First Flatiron. Follow the main trail left, about 30 yards past the bottom of standard route on the First and then turn right and hike up the gully to a big boulder.
