East Face of the Gazebo
|95 page views|
A good climb on good rock, but as there is so much of that on the various East Faces of the various Flatirons, it is hard to say much of a short pitch on a small formation. This is one for the summit-tickers.
Hike North off of the trail along the East Face from the south end of the formation until all bulges and loos rock is passed. Several opions will present themselves, but pne stand out near the tallest point of the rock. The climbing is solid and high friction- head up to the top on scoops and bumps.
To descend, scramble northard on the ridge to a slot facing north, down that past a tree and to the ground on the North side of the West face.
This route lies on the East Face of the formation, no more than 50 meters North of where the rock meets a switch-back on the trail.
Maybe a bit here and there, but most people solo it.
