The Hobo is a small Flatironette that sits some 50 yards West of the Hillbilly. Good rock leads to a surprisingly small and exposed summit. This is a fun rock to bag after a climb of Stairway to Heaven or Hillbilly Rock...
Follow Skunk Canyon trail until a faint trail separates to the North and towards Hillbilly rock which by now looms above you. Hike under and to the North side of Hillbilly. Head West skirting the North edge and continue some 50 yards West to the now prominent HOBO.

East Face/Hobo Trad, 1 pitch, 120 feet
Featured Route For The Hobo
The base of the Hobo is cluttered with fallen blocks. The largest of these leans against the East face. You can scramble up this block and down the other side onto the East face or just climb up to the notch between them. From there, it is some easy 100+ ft of enjoyable, solid rock, Flatiron scrambling. The summit is small and exposed, the views of Stairway and Satan's Slab are hard to beat.Descent - Downclimb the route you just climbed....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
