This is a quarry visible at the north end of the Flatirons not too far above the Mesa Trail, south of the 3rd Flatiron. The rock is clean, quarried, 65 degree angle sandstone. There are some bolted slab routes to 100 feet here listed in Boulder Climbs North. The fixed gear is dated so consider Screamers or don't fall too far. This area is probably for those into the obscure hit list.
Hike the Mesa Trail either North from NCAR or South from Chataqua to South of the 3rd Flatiron. [There is now a well-maintained trail to the quarry, marked with signs, leading right (northwest) as you approach from Chatauqua Park.]
This is for the semi-obscure aficionados. This is a feature that sees little traffic. This scar in the landscape has yielded a few briefly pleasant, 65-degree-angle slab climbs. Approach via the Mesa trail from NCAR or Chataqua. There is a faint trail to its base, not too far from the Mesa Trail. This is the leftmost of the routes with fixed protection here.Follow small edges up the left side past 4 bolts (all 1/4"). The crux is between the 2nd and 3rd bolts.

The only fully bolted lines have new bolts. (It appears that no new bolts have been added.) I believe there are 2 lines, plus, on the very right side, a single modern bolt about 1/3 up the wall on a line that maybe can take some additioanl pro. More TR's are possible. Bouldering along the base of the slab is quite nice, too.
Use caution when setting up top-ropes at the top of this cliff. There is an enormous amount of loose junk up there, and it is almost impossible to avoid knocking some of it down over the edge. Other party members should stay clear until the set-up or tear-down is complete.
