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.

Flat Foot 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  CO : South Platte : ... : Flathead Dome
This route is on the east side of the south face of Flathead Dome. There are two parallel running cracks on the east end of the south face. They are both slightly right leaning. This is the left hand of the two.This route is in your face right off the deck. The wall undercuts at your chest and getting your legs in on the action is very difficult. Crank long and strenuously off a good hand jam to a good finger lock. Grind your way upwards through sustained, flaring, bottoming, leaning crack...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
