Fun! Boyfriend dragged me out...
Did the 3rd Flatiron via Standard East Route with the lovely lady friend
I've been getting out on the Flatirons quite a bit lately and am looking forward to lot more.
have climbed many routes on the first, second, third, flying flatiron, first flatironette, red devil, front porch, backporch, der zerkle and freischutz, fi, finger flatiron, matron, fatiron, maiden, dinosaur and seal rocks in the past months. devil's thumb remains elusive. leading at 5.7 and following 5.9/10 nowadays. very excited to see what's next on these rocks!
Climbed the 3rd with Fernando and Annie today. My first multi pitch trad climb! Was really fun, though I'd just as easily solo the thing.
Climbed part of Freeway and face, never got above 5.2 lots of fun.
Climbed the East Face Gully Route. Walked off at the bottom of the North Arete. The Flatirons are great fun!
Have made it close to the top, hiking no rock climbing, over the years- most recent listed here
a nice accomplishment with great views of boulder
Climbed Baker's Way across the East Face of the First. With questionable weather approaching, we elected to rap of the W face with thunder in the air.
Highlight of my many days in the flatirons was climbing the east faces of all 3 flatirons in 6 hours - simul on 1 and 2, then tandem freesolo on #3. Recommended!
me and another gal did a bunch of fun climbs here. didn't use a guide and enjoyed the unknown. someone on the top said we did a first ascent, when I described the route we took. whatever, we just wanted to get an april tan.
I was sad to be leaving Colorado in a week, so after a grueling hike up Holy Cross the day before, I decided to get in one more hike on something easier. We hiked up the standard trail between the 1st and 2nd flatirons, but weren't able to get to top of either one because we didn't have any climbing equipment with us.
Climbed the first pitch of Baker's Way. After wandering around above thebelay, I could not find the second part of the route. We bailed off and went around to climb the two pitch SW Ridge. It was a nice easy climb!
Edit: Instead of the first pitch of Baker's, I'm now thinking that I climbed the first 1-2 pitches of Kamakazi Roofs...?!
Date Climbed: Aug 18, 2008
Came back with fellow Memphis Mountaineers (Sam & Paul) and climbed Baker's Way, rapped off, hiked to the SW Face and climbed it to the summit. Sort of a "Flatiron Spiral Rotue"... Lots of nice easy climbing.
Great climb with Fabio, Andy, and Kristin.
Super fun, first trad lead
Great long easy rock climb.
Most recently I climbed the Third on a windless sunny fall day with spring like temps. Did not see another sole until we were about halfway up. Only saw two others the entire time. Finished with the Greeman's Crack which was very interesting.
