Description 

This rock provides a couple of pleasant Flatiron Scrambles including a Flatiron Classic (Roach Guide) on a very remote section of the Flatirons.

The hike is long and the elevation gain is substantial but you will be rewarded with good rock and no lines waiting at the base (we did spot a boulderer working on a "project" somewhere in an obscure section of the approach)

The Rock is a couple hundred feet North and slightly West of the Devil's advocate. It's top sits North and about same level as the base of the Flying Flatiron.


Getting There 

The easiest approach is to hike up the South Shanahan trail and turn South on the Mesa trail. After a couple of hundred yards cut right across a man made meadow heading West South West. This will eventually drop you into a small Canyon. Follow the canyon West eventually exiting it to continue West up the Hill. By now you should have the Devil's advocate to your left and to your right a broken rib of rock runnning West and ending slightly North of Tiny Tower. After a steep couple hundred feet from this point you will be at the base.

It took us 50 minutes a a brisk pace to do this approach

This short route ascends the ridge on the West side of Tiny Tower. It is a fun solo scramble if comfortable at the grade.

Descent - Downclimb the East face for 15-20 feet to a horizontal crack and traverse North to a notch and downclimb West....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
