  • Description 

    Saddle Rock is a prominent feature high on the North side of Green Mountain. it is the only granite formation included in Gerry Roach's Flatiron Classics.

    Although a bit scruffy it has a couple of fun though moderate route and of course it is one of the few rocks in the flatirons with its own trail: Saddle Rock Trail.

    Getting There 

    To reach Saddle Rock start at the Gregory Canyon TH and hike up the Saddle Rock trial. One mile and 1,200 vertical feet later you will reach a saddle on the trail. Saddle Rock is not very visible from this point since it is lower and to your right.

    Walk north (right) off the Saddle Rock trail onto a faint trail that leads over and between some rocks. After a few yards you will be able to see the Southern Summit of the saddle. The approach trail to most routes on the formation drops to the left (West) and countours the rock after passing west of the saddle.

    This is one of the cleanest and nicest scrambling routes on Saddle Rock. It also provides you with some awesome views of the Indian Peaks and Long's in the distance.Hike in as described on West Face route, but continue heading north until you reach the NW corner of the north summit.A huge free standing mini-Chamonix-like spire marks the spot. Head up the blocky gully picking up the line that suits you best. A some point traverse right out of the gully and head up to a large ledge below a vertica...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
