Lovingly titled the "Book of Armaments" by Bill Wright, Gerry's guide to the Flatirons is a comprehensive list of routes in the Flatirons. Throughout the guide he designates several dozen routes as being "Classic" as well as noting the "Top 10". He goes on to say that anybody who climbs all the Classics earns the title "Dr. Flatiron" and that plus enough to equal 100 routes will graduate "Summit Cum Laude". This list is simply an easy place for me to track my progress.
