This long, narrow Flatiron is located immediately north of The Hand and Mallory Cave. In 2001, the East Face of this crag was closed from Spring to late Fall to protect bats.
The base of the East Face rises above the end of the Mallory Cave Trail. The easiest way to reach all other faces is to continue on the trail past Mallory Cave as it climbs south of The Box. When you get almost as high as the summit of the Finger Flatiron, the trail forks, take the left fork and walk south into the gully behind (west of) the Finger Flatiron. To get off the summit, rap 60' northwest from slings.

It's lack of sun and coarse rock warrants long sleeves and long pants.3 stars for aesthetics, 1.5 stars for rock quality, 2 stars for climbing, 2 stars for position.
