Anorman414East ridge   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 2, 2012
The first pitch definitely seemed harder than 5.5 to me even on top rope. Awkward is the best way to describe this. If you're a good leader you should be fine and ours was able to place 3 pieces of pro. We did the route in 4 pitches and the slab was very enjoyable and more interesting/exciting than the 3rd flatiron. We repelled with a double rope that reached the ground, 60 & 70 meters I
believe. It was a straight forward and entertaining repel- definitely exciting. It took us between 5-6 hrs to complete with 3 people.

Brian CEast Ridge - Dr. Flatiron  Sucess!

The last of Roach's "Classic" climbs for me and today I gained the title of Dr. Flatiron. The first pitch was tricky for me but only for the last few moves. I wasn't exactly sure on how to pull the final overhang and I think I was too short to reach the big holds above. The move looks very improbable from below (especially with Roach giving it a 5.4) but works out. Don't expect loads of great pro on P1, this would not be a good first lead (go with the north face). The upper ridge is classic and a great summit.

From the north face to the summit in three pitches. First pitch was a really fun 5.6.

Climbed the East Face w/Jamie. Fun climb and great views. I think Jamie's use of the word awkward fittingly descibes the rappel we ended up on!

climbed w/heather, the first pitch getting onto the east ridge was quite challenging and took us a good chunk of time. we thought it was rough for 5.5. once on the ridge we enjoyed fun, easier(5.0-5.4) climbing to the summit.

the rappels were quite an adventure as we seemed to have wandered too far right and found ourselves in some awkward positions before reaching the ground. is there two rappel stations halfway down? certainly seems that way....

SarahThompsonNorth Face start, took two tries  Sucess!

North face (5.6) start. After two pitches the north face route joins the slightly easier east ridge route. First attempted this in March and had to give up because the shaded rock was too cold and my fingers were totally numb. Sulked while my partners continued on :(. Went back on a warmer day and made it, though the first pitch on the north face still seemed rather difficult. The upper east ridge part of the route is all fun, easy scrambling.
