Not much here for a destination climb or the average boulderer.However, for teaching somebody how to rap, this is your rock. Unseen from the bottom are two giant 50s vintage eye-bolts. Configured as they are one is able to belay another to rap either the gently sloping 50' east face or the 70' free rappel on the overhanging west face. As they are the bolts make it possible for the novice to find his or her technique for this 70' free ride while being belayed. The north west side of the rock offers big ledges for the best access to the top. There is one or two 5th class moves to make in order to gain the summit. This is also a good place to let beginners get a feel for slab climbing in the flatirons on the east face.
Follow Baseline Rd. west to its end. You are now at the bottom of Flagstaff Mtn. You may go left to the Gregory Canyon parking area or right to ascend Flagstaff. From here, the bridge at the bottom of Flagstaff Mtn., go right and wind 1.6 miles to the Crown Rock parking area. As you approach the 1.6 mile mark Crown Rock will appear on your left just after a right hand hairpin. Slow down because to park you'll need to make a sharp left immediately after the rock. Head SE from your car for about 150 yards and look for a mini-flatiron about 90 feet high and 100 feet across.

As is mentioned in the area description, this route is not much for a destination climb. That said, it is an enjoyable place for the newer climber to safely attempt a short section of offwidth (on TR of course). The first 40 feet involves an easy climb up a mild slope before reaching the beginning of the overhanging crack. One must combine several offwidth jams with face jugs to surmount the final crux section before reaching the anchors. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
