  • Description 

    About 1/2 way between the route Alan Nelson's Bulging Belly and the boulder problem Paw Prints, there is a shoulder on the L&F flatiron that has a huge south ramp. Access the ramp via dark slick rock to get to better holds on the right, then up on the right above a gully between the main wall of L&F and the smaller sub-formation on its south side. Climb the ramp system on good rock and even better holds- staying on the right well above the gully. You will pass just below a large, low-angle, right-facing dihedral the goes to the summit ridge, then shortly thereafter go up a steeper face to the next ramp system that continue past a point where the gully down and left ends (as the sub-feature of the main wall ends). Climb down a slot on low angle rock and big holds before the ramp disappears.

    Location 

    This climb ascends the South Ramp on the L&F flatiron. It starts in a dark, glassy water runnel for a few feet before climbing to the right of it on better rock... then it accesses the right side of the feature and climbs for a long way on a system of narrow ramps. A few hundred feet up a sloping, narrow ramp with friction for feet, but good hands provides a second 'crux' for the soloist.

    Protection 

    A standard light rack would probably afford gear most of the way.
