Description 

This gentle slab of good quality rock sits just in front of the Third Flatiron. It catches the morning sun and is an excellent early morning scrambling venue, or as an extended approach to the Standard East Face on the Third Flatiron.


Getting There 

Hike up the Royal Arch trail from Chautauqua, passing the turnoff for the 2nd and 3rd Flatiron trail. 100 feet before the trail crosses the seasonal stream, there is a faint trail heading uphill on the right. Follow this trending leftwards to reach the base of the Southeast Ridge.
