“A demanding trail well worth the view and feeling of accomplishment.”— Dwayne Childers
The climb up the draw is slippery but taking your time makes it easy. Remember on your way down to zigzag to make the descent easier here. There's a waterfall to your left here if there has been recent rain. You are just shy of the halfway point and this is a turn around point for a lot of people, but why stop here?
The trail now becomes more of a scramble. Stop often to turn around and enjoy the view and to get a picture of your path down. Near the top, you'll come to a section that requires upper body strength to pull yourself up or having someone push you. This is the last real obstacle before the trail turns right and out to the tip of Flatiron. Take a break and enjoy the view. You've earned it!
