First Flatiron  Sucess!

October 6 2019

Shaylee and I met Chad in Denver and we headed for the First Flatiron. We climbed Bakers Way and the North Arete. Chad led so I could stay close to Shaylee. It was a great climb, but chillier than expected.

April 22 2018

Chad and I met in Boulder to climb the First Flatiron. We planned on climbing Fandango, but we didn’t have a good route description printed. We ended up on Kamikaze Overhangs and the Zig Zag route (or at least a variation of those routes) instead. Chad did most of the leading, but I led a pitch on Zig Zag, but got off route (we didn’t have a route description for this route). I ended up on a long runout section (X rated) that ended on some scary ledges. It was really intimidating. I descended back down to a minor ledge that I could place a little protection on and belayed Chad up. He climbed to the dead-end, pulled a sketchy camp placement I places and then headed right over some easier ledges.

The climb was fun, except for the scary runout moments. One and a half pitches from the top, we hit the much easier North Arete route and followed that to the summit. After that, we rappelled off the backside and hiked down.

East Face Direct  Sucess!

Solo with a friend. 2nd "pitch" by far is the crux, IMO. The rest is pretty straight forward. Fun and good practice for later this summer.
