Description 

This rock is a slender flatironette that runs West to the North of the Red Devil (they are actually connected). It starts some 100ft before Red Devil as you approach it's East face, and forms a small amphitheater to the North of its base.

As it runs West, it is taller than the base of Red devil and this creates an overhanging feature. It finally runs out after some 400ft.

It provides a fun and very exposed scramble on the overhang that overlooks Red Devil.


Getting There 

Follow directions as for Red Devil... It will come into view about 100 ft before it. It starts literally next to the trail...

Featured Route For Unicorn

East Overhang 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  CO : Flatirons : ... : Unicorn
This climb starts at the Southern end of the Unicorn, as for the SE Arete for about 150 feet. Follow that route to a rounded ledge below an overhang, where the SE arete goes south to a ramp at the overhang. Rather than go left and onto the sub-ramp of this Flatiron as for the original route, go up and right to a flake and a large horn of rock to the right in the middle of the overhang. Undercling and grasp good knobs to pull through the roof and establish yourself above this, then continue up...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
