  • Description 

    The Second Advisor or the three is the middle one, lying just South of the top of the first. The rock is somewhat similar and is given to being scrambled or soloed, but is not the bullet hard and clean rock that is sometimes found in the Flatirons. It is slightly more scrappy and dirty. The single documented climb is the East Face, and that is an OK route, but it is nothing special. In particular, it is poor down low, but it improves once the climber is above the shade line.

    To descend, improvise a moderate scramble down from the Western Summit.

    Getting There 

    This rock can be reached by hiking due South a few hundred meters, maintaining or slightly gaining elevation from the base of the First Advisor. The Northeast corner of the rock will be encountered in this way. As well, if enchaining the three Advisors, down-climbing from the summit of the first and heading South by Southeast will connect you to the North face of the Second Advisor.
