Off Route?  Sucess!

How we got off route on the most well known 5.6 route in CO is beyond me, but anything is possible. A fun day out too.

First first  Sucess!

Climbed this for the first time with Josh on a Monday, and we had the rock to ourselves, save for a party of three that we met on the second-to-last pitch. Josh led it in typical fashion, placing nearly no pro. Which made it easy to follow.

Classic!  Sucess!

I've been up this at least 7 or 8 times and it's still a blast.

Third classed  Sucess!

Was in Boulder without a partner and so third classed this route and finished off with the N. Ridge. A great outing.

Winter climb?  Sucess!

Started snowing on our way down. Very cool route with lots of small variations... gonna try for this again!

midnite mountaineering  Sucess!

Fun  Sucess!

Classic, fun climb. Stu and I hit it on a perfect summer day. Climbed with a 50 meter rope and as a result required about 10 pitches, way too many. Climb it with a 70 meter.

Fun solo  Sucess!

Did it twice today. The first pitch is friction-y, and can be a bit intimidating, but it eases up after that.

1st Climb of Road Trip 2010  Sucess!

Went with friends Jonas and Matthias. Jonas led the first and second pitch well while I got us to the ridge. Jonas did another short pitch on top and I finished it off to the summit. The rappel down the backside was fun and exciting. N.B. the 5th pitch was done without placement of any pro showing how solid the rock can be for foot purchase.

direct state of mind  Sucess!

climbed this fine line w/seth. have been wanting to get on this route for awhile, but never saw it coming until a last minute change of plans. fun swapping leads in order to challenge some harder rock with the added comfort of the rope above you!

Direct East Face  Sucess!

Good introduction to the Flatirons. Mellow route - a lot of fun.

First  Sucess!

This was my first Flat Iron climb and I though it was classic... I really enjoyed leading the 1st and 3rd pitch. not much for gear placement but I hear that's common in the flat irons... awsome open air rap and a nice walk down.

Free Solo  Sucess!

Free soloed from base to summit in about 30 mins. Really fun, I think I'm just gonna solo the rest of the Flatirons, really no need to bring a rope. The downclimb is exposed, but the holds are solid.

Great spring climb  Sucess!

Rock ratings still confuse me. I thought this climb was a piece of cake. However, I found the first pitch on the Matron's 5.6 north face to be tricky.

My first trad climb

This was a great first trad climb for me. The first pitch was the hardest...after that it eased up quite a bit. It was a great day.

Nice Route  Sucess!

Best to either solo or simul-climb after the first pitch, stop at the ridge to collect gear then traverse like mad to get to the top.

East Face  Sucess!

Great climb! Wickedely windy on the summit ridge though...made rapping a bit more interesting!
