This route is not nearly as bad as I had expected and is a very enjoyable climb to a unique summit. The top is much flatter than the usual Flatiron summit and provides stunning views of the surrounding formations. Be cautious of the crux pitch as a fall could be very, very bad and I would recommend bringing a few offset cams to protect the moves. In contrary to other reports, we did not find any pitons on the south face ramp and I believe that it is due to the fact that we left the ramp at the proper place. It seems that many parties continue too far up the ramp, find the piton, and end up on much harder terrain. As long as the leader is solid on 5.7 and confident in route-finding, this is a worthwhile outing.
