Lower chunk: Scrambled up the 4th class P1. I led P2 & a short P4. Rapped from an existing anchor.
Upper chunk: Scrambled up a bit, then I led an easy pitch and my partner led a second easy pitch to the summit. Rapped from existing anchor.
Hiked up to Devils Thumb for a quick thrill afterwards.
climbed this flatiron w/mike. an enjoyable climb, but certainly not a top-10 route. the slabby parts on the lower piece were thinkers and lots of fun. don't know where the 5.4 route is? the right edge?
Climbed with Jamie. I led most of the route, and found it a bit run out in places, but tree slings came in handy! We both think we ended up too far left on P2 and into the 5.5/6 variation. Maybe didn't pitch this one out that well either, probably could have stopped P2 at a lower flake seeing as our P3 was only about 1/2 a rope. This was my second trad lead after leading The Forgotten Flatiron (aka Icarus) earlier that same day.
