Nice route

Solo. First time in the Flatirons. Started with 1.5 pitches of Kamikaze, traversed to Fandango and summited via North Arete.

Roach's Variaiton   Sucess!

Climbed the variation recommended by Gerry. The short roof didn't seem to have the "chin-up bars" that he describes but it worked out just fine. He gives it a 5.5 but most people say 6 or 7 but I think he's pretty spot on. A great route and I think my 6th different route on the First. A classic rock!

with CMC  Sucess!

Gorgeous, but hot day. Virtually no wind - a nice change from last month on Baker's Way.

Great route!  Sucess!

6/3/11 - Led all pitches. Didn't intend on it, but ended up getting sucked into the 5.6 variation straight up from the big tree. It seemed like the more natural line. Climbing next to the massive dihedral leading up to the North Arete is fantastic.

3/31/12 - Standard Fandango route this time (which protects infinitely better at the crux!).

5/31/13 - Led all pitches with very few placements. Solo to summit after 5.5 crux pitch.

hard to distinguish between routes on the flatiron... but got to the top nonetheless

fandango, with a whoops!  Sucess!

lovely, lovely climb with one SMALL error. i ended up taking the fourth pitch to the left of the dihedral and climbing a 5.7 roof to get back on route. the rest was lovely and i can't wait to get back up there! this time on the proper route :)

Fandango  Sucess!

First time on the First  Sucess!

Followed CharlesD on Fandango for my first time up the First Flatiron. A very fun climb with a few more technical moves to keep it interesting.

nice variation  Sucess!

Climbed this once before but Jan ascent was in a snowstorm. Good training for the big and running water on the route made it feel like 5.9!

A little harder than the Third  Sucess!

A little longer and harder than climbing the Third ... especially if you do one of the more difficult routes.
