  • Description 

    This rock provides a couple of pleasant Flatiron Scrambles including a Flatiron Classic (Roach Guide) on a very remote section of the Flatirons.

    The hike is long and the elevation gain is substantial but you will be rewarded with good rock and no lines waiting at the base (we did spot a boulderer working on a "project" somewhere in an obscure section of the approach)

    The Rock is a couple hundred feet North and slightly West of the Devil's advocate. It's top sits North and about same level as the base of the Flying Flatiron.

    Getting There 

    The easiest approach is to hike up the South Shanahan trail and turn South on the Mesa trail. After a couple of hundred yards cut right across a man made meadow heading West South West. This will eventually drop you into a small Canyon. Follow the canyon West eventually exiting it to continue West up the Hill. By now you should have the Devil's advocate to your left and to your right a broken rib of rock runnning West and ending slightly North of Tiny Tower. After a steep couple hundred feet from this point you will be at the base.

    It took us 50 minutes a a brisk pace to do this approach

    From the base of the East face you will notice a large fin of rock about 2/3 of the way up. This fin forms a right-facing dihedral. The route climbs up the East face slabs slightly left and turns right under the fin and follows the dihedral.P-1 Start at the low point of the rock or slightly North of it. Work your way up and left on somewhat unprotected rock. I placed 3 pieces for the whole pitch. The climbing is easy but punctuated by some 5.4 moves. Once under the fin move right and enter the d...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
