  • Description 

    This rock is highly visible from the Gregory trail head. It is the large buttress dominating the view as you look West.

    More than a Flatiron, this rock is a ridge that runs North to South.

    Although the climbs on this rock are interesting, it must be noted that the quality of the rock is suspect and due to its exposure and low traffic, the North ridge sports a spectacular crop of green and black lichen

    Definitely not your carefree Flatiron scramble.

    [It may be included in bird nesting closures.]

    Getting There 

    You can approach this rock from two directions:

    North Ridge: From the Gregory trailhead take the Saddle rock trail and climb up the trail until you are under the Low point of the rock, the trail will actually trun the West side of the rock eventually. Hike up a faint and steep trail to the West side of the base of the ridge.

    South Ridge: The base of the ridge is only a few yards North of the amphitheater trail after you pass the amphitheater and the Third Pinnacle's South Ridge (see description)

    This short route provides an interesting ridge scramble.The Southern end of the Gregory Flatironette literally touches the Amphitheater trail. To reach it, head up this trail past the amphitheater and the other ridges. Some 15 ft before the trail reaches the top of the hill you will see a small ridge to your right. This is it...Head up the ridge past a couple of notches. The crux is the last headwall that leads to the pin point summit.Descent - Downclimb the East face or down a notch to the West...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
