Look for the large, white guano patch at the top of a right-facing dihedral on the right side of the large slab that forms the left side of the Second Flatiron. Scramble up to a ledge with trees about 100 feet below the patch.

Pitch 1: from the ledge, climb slabs to the base of the overhang, which can be passed in two crux stages with good gear. Belay on the slab at a good stance just over the lip of the overhang (5.8).

Pitch 2-3: wander up over surprisingly thin, unprotected slabs toward the summit. Two pitches are needed to reach the summit (5.5).


The route is on the left side of the Second Flatiron. Hike the Third Flatiron trail to the Satellite Boulders. Leave the trail above the boulders to the right, and find the shoulder of the Second Flatiron.

Downclimb off the back of the south summit of the Second Flatiron.


There are no bolts, there is one fixed pin.
