Headed up on a sunny day before the closure. A very fun route and loved the solitude. It was a breezy/chilly day making our fingers numb and showers of ice kept coming down from above. I also questioned the 5.2 rating. Sticking to the left edge felt thin for the rating.
soloed this baby expecting something more along the lines of roach's 5.2 route. it definitely wasn't 5.2! oh well, i preserved and it was an amazing experience. the part not being connected to a rope while soloing, i'm not sure about that yet. to be continued....probably many times.
Another fun climb in the Flatirons. We ended up leaving the trail to soon and found ourselves near the start of the standard east face. We hiked down for a while, soon tired of the endless bushwacking and decided to start where we were and traverse over to the roof. We went up the side of the roof and enjoyed the rest of the day from there.
