  • Description 

    This rock is a slender flatironette that runs West to the North of the Red Devil (they are actually connected). It starts some 100ft before Red Devil as you approach it's East face, and forms a small amphitheater to the North of its base.

    As it runs West, it is taller than the base of Red devil and this creates an overhanging feature. It finally runs out after some 400ft.

    It provides a fun and very exposed scramble on the overhang that overlooks Red Devil.

    Getting There 

    Follow directions as for Red Devil... It will come into view about 100 ft before it. It starts literally next to the trail...

The crux is found in the initial 30 feet of the ramp where it thins out and the overhang above you is pushing towards the Red Devil some 60 feet below. Negotiate this section and romp up to the summit.Descent - downclimb from the summit block to the East, and head Northwest dow...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
