Description

Start at the very bottom of the Flatiron, just up from the bridge. Look for a water groove going up, and a rougher edge to the right of it, with a couple ring bolts.

P1. Climb up past two ring bolts, then angle up and left towards a tree. 5.6R 60m.

Continue upwards for about 5 pitches on the face before hitting the right ridge line. Then a couple pitches left up this past a couple false peaks to the final peak. (Rap anchors.)

Rap off the back side -- one single pitch (30m) rap. Then hike down the trail between the first and second flatiron. Trail will bring you back to the bridge at the base.

Generally 6-10 pitches depending on how you pitch it out.
