  • Description 

    Harmon's East is a small rock just North/Northeast of the Harmon Flatironete. The stone is very good and gets good southern exposure on the main ridge, making for a clean and more traveled ascent than would be expected.

    The descent is a climb down to the S/SW from the South Peak and then around the North end back to the base. This is near vertical in spots and on very good holds but might be uncomfortable unroped for a beginner.


    Getting There 

    Approach about 35 minutes as for the Harmon Flatiron, and skirt that formation to the Northeast to find a detached, independent spike of rock, an independent 120' feature and summit.

    This is a relatively mellow romp up good rock. If it were a longer route, it would get more stars, but as it stands, it's a good add-on to the routes nearby on the Harmon Flatironette proper.The route is simple. Head North/Northeast below the Harmon Cave entrance and around that formation past a slight gully and a few meters further to a detached rock formation. Go to the low point of the rock, look towards the high point of the rock, and make a beeline between the two....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
