Located on the protruding, overhanging west face of the Maiden formation. Access the Crow's Nest, a scenic belay shelf below the west overhang, via the far west end, 5.6. From the Crow's Nest climb up the 5.9 crack and follow it up and around the left side of the spire, 5.8, and then traverse back right, under the overhang to an airy belay below the slot. Climb the slot, 5.11a, to the summit. The Direct Finish climbs up the 5.9 crack and head straight out the overhang, 5.11d, to the summit. This is a spectacular route and a Flatiron experience like no other.
