Description 

This minor formation lies a couple hundred yards north of the Taj Mahal. It is very obvious as it is appropriately named. Looks like a big granite loaf of bread.


Getting There 

Follow the directions given to the "The Taj Mahal" on this site. Hike up the wooded valley on the north side of the Taj and you will come to the south face of Flathead Dome. For "Flatfoot" and "project", Scramble fairly directly to the east edge of the formation. For "Pi Patrol" keep hiking further west up the little valley [until] the obvious chimney is about 100 feet above you. Scramble up a little gully that leads to a low angle handcrack. This will get you up to the bushy area below the chimney.

There are two parallel right leaning cracks. This route tackles the right hand crack.The wall undercuts at chest level, so the first move is a fair crank. Jam up the bottoming, leaning, and sometimes sliightly dirty crack. It is pretty difficult to conserve your strength on this part, whic...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
