Climbed this for the first time with Josh on a Monday, and we had the rock to ourselves, save for a party of three that we met on the second-to-last pitch. Josh led it in typical fashion, placing nearly no pro. Which made it easy to follow.

I've been up this at least 7 or 8 times and it's still a blast.

Was in Boulder without a partner and so third classed this route and finished off with the N. Ridge. A great outing.

Classic, fun climb. Stu and I hit it on a perfect summer day. Climbed with a 50 meter rope and as a result required about 10 pitches, way too many. Climb it with a 70 meter.

Did it twice today. The first pitch is friction-y, and can be a bit intimidating, but it eases up after that.

Garon Coriz1st Climb of Road Trip 2010  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 19, 2010

Went with friends Jonas and Matthias. Jonas led the first and second pitch well while I got us to the ridge. Jonas did another short pitch on top and I finished it off to the summit. The rappel down the backside was fun and exciting. N.B. the 5th pitch was done without placement of any pro showing how solid the rock can be for foot purchase.

climbed this fine line w/seth. have been wanting to get on this route for awhile, but never saw it coming until a last minute change of plans. fun swapping leads in order to challenge some harder rock with the added comfort of the rope above you!

Easy for 5.6. The first pitch is really not that bad and easier from there on up. A good way to spend a day.

Good introduction to the Flatirons. Mellow route - a lot of fun.

This was my first Flat Iron climb and I though it was classic... I really enjoyed leading the 1st and 3rd pitch. not much for gear placement but I hear that's common in the flat irons... awsome open air rap and a nice walk down.

Free soloed from base to summit in about 30 mins. Really fun, I think I'm just gonna solo the rest of the Flatirons, really no need to bring a rope. The downclimb is exposed, but the holds are solid.

Rock ratings still confuse me. I thought this climb was a piece of cake. However, I found the first pitch on the Matron's 5.6 north face to be tricky.

This was a great first trad climb for me. The first pitch was the hardest...after that it eased up quite a bit. It was a great day.

Best to either solo or simul-climb after the first pitch, stop at the ridge to collect gear then traverse like mad to get to the top.

Recent ascent was freesolo but I have been up it at least 8 times in the last 10 years. Best view from any flatiron. Notch hopping on the summit ridge gives it a little alpine flavor.
