A little tricky at the end but otherwise an easy slab cruise
Interesting route, lots of variety of climbing from low angle slabs to nice featured face climbing, some route finding challenges, and spectacular ridge finish. climbed with shanahan96.
climbed w/mike, fun route with some thrilling spots once you engage pullman car and the terrain directly below it. busted my lip up testing a loose cam in the chute below the crux, resulting in a bloody mess. finishing off on the intriguing south face and ridge of pullman car was an exhilarating way to wrap the climb up!
A fine 60 degree winter day! We started up the Freeway and traversed to the Free For All route as we approached the Pullman Car. Climbed the south side of the Pullman Car and rapped from the summit.
A fun and tricky route, definitely changed my perception of the second flatiron. This route is much trickier than the E face of the third flatiron. I wish I felt good climbing 5.10+ there is a sweet crack up there with nice decking potential. Nice day for climbing. With Jim C.
cruising up the arete on the Pullman car was especially fun - mostly rope dragging otherwise.
This nice route probably gets ignored because the 2nd isn't as impressive as the 3rd and the 1st ... too bad it's a nice route.
Went with my good friend Jeff, ended up drinking quite heavily afterwords. always good times with jeff
