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.
Climbed in early February...caught a nice weather window. Only people on the route...one soloist on the North Ridge. Great fun route!
Were headed to Eldo for the day and got side tracked on this route. Climbed it in two groups of two and hauled ass. Got a bit of a sunburn. Easy day and we all really liked the route
Solo'd and saw only one other party on a 60 degree Sunny Friday afternoon. The down climb from the rappel anchors was casual if the top gets crowded.
Great climb- especially for a relative novice to trad climbing like me. The crux was on the first pitch. Climbed with Bill Morris with Front Range Guides who I highly recommend.
A quality route.
Great route done it many times. You can skip the 6th pitch and rap of some slings on the right side of the second headwall. You don't get to the top but you skip the horrible ridge traverse. Definitally not for the timid. If like to place a lot of gear this is not the route for you. The second pitch i put in 2 horrible pieces in 150 feet.
