  • Description 

    An easily accessible, after-work roof-practice climb.

    To get there, take either the Amphitheater Anchor Access or Amphitheater Express trail up to a small level area at the base of the third Pinnacle, directly west of the second Pinnacle and the top of the Amphitheater.

    The anchor points for this one are easily reached via a short hike around the northern side of the rock, but note that there are no fixed bolts, so you'll need to set your own pro if you decided to toprope. Begin the climb by gaining a ledge about 15' up, either straight up the slab or by following an easy crack and dihedral to its right. Turn the ~3 foot roof above, using plentiful, good handholds and then scramble to the summit. If you're leading this one, be sure to set enough pro to keep from decking on the ledge directly below.


    Protection 

    Standard Flatirons rack.

    Fun moves up to and through the roof, especially if you take the slabby start. Above the roof the climbing wasn't anything special.
