This is the route in the center of the beautiful black wall and follows a small corner. It has great moves on excellent rock.

There is no descent anchor, walk off left (north). This area gets excellent sun even in the winter.


See Thumper for the general location. From Thumper, "adventure hike" about 100 yards north to a fern covered talus slope. On your left (west) will be the massive slab of the 4th Flatiron. On your right is a west-facing, vertical wall containing 4 routes.


3 bolts plus small gear.
