Description 

The Spy is a cool little fin of rock that sits under the NE corner of the First Flatiron. It is difficult to identify as a separate rock from Boulder.


Getting There 

From Gregory Canyon head on the trail to the First Flatiron. Turn off north when you get to a junction marked "First Flatironette". If you reach the base of the normal East Face route you have gone too far. Head north under the First Flatironette to its north end. The Spy is connected to the First Flatironette at its base, but you should see that it becomes a separate pinnacle above.

The South Face of The Spy is steep and featured and therefore inviting. There are a couple of other possible lines here, but the protection and rock quality on those are suspect. This route is the most obvious weakness to the right of the big tree and the bird poop stains.... Named for one of the most famous spies of all time, I was really hoping 007 would be 5.7, and luckily enough that feels about right. This has most likely been climbed before, if not, it should get climbed some mo...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
