What a great day for a long climb! Weather was perfect and the rock was great. Alot of traffic up there but I guess that is to be expected being that close to Boulder and having such a great weather day to climb.
Fun times with a couple new friends from Seattle: Stacy, Brian, and Derek (who I roped with). Busy day up there(Sun), but had some fun taking our time setting trad anchors etc. Fun rapping too, just had to wait in line.
My first Trad climb, multi pitch. This was really fun, but I'd just as easily solo the thing.
Simul'd with Josh, took about an hour. Great time and got back just as it was getting dark.
Have climbed the east face route several times. One of the funnest climbs ever. Never tire of the setting, exposure, and feel of this timeless classic.
10/12/03 - This was my introduction to rock climbing. It was fun and very easy as a beginner. This was the first time I'd ever rappelled too - it took a lot of guts to step off that summit!
11/8/13 - Swapped leads with Gary. Did in 5 pitches with 70m rope. I led P1, P3 & P5. Brought back some cool memories!
Climbed this several times in college circa 1994. The first time we missed the last pitch and ended up in the 'room' below the summit block. Second time was a charm and enjoyed the view from above and the 3rd and final hanging rappel!
Had it all to myself!
A great beginner climb with tons of exposure.
At 16 yrs old, I was scared out of my mind on this rock! A good friend of my dad (Tom Sarazan) lead my father and I to the top. I had a splitting headache, and swore to myself that I'd never climb again! Well, I didn't keep that promise to myself :)
been up this at least 12 times, once simul but otherwise freesolo. wish it went on for another couple thousand feet, it is so sweet.....
One of the all time great, move over the rock, fun climbs. I've done it at least 30 times, by several routes.
Viva la Third !!!!
third or 4'th? time on this route, it's great just due to size but obviously not a highly technical climb, always good to spend time in boulder
This was the first of several times that I've been up the Third Flatiron. I love the climb, but am not fond of the first rappel...I aways feel as if I'm going to bash my teeth when I go over the edge.
CLimbed with a buddy during a sweet week-long summer road trip to Colorado. Didn't sign the register: no pen or pencil there, but we did take a picture of it.
This was my first climbing trip to Colorado. Climbed the Third Flatiron with Keith G. via the standard route. It was runout but easy climbing, great fun with lots of people on route. Witnessed a couple proposing each other on the summit, can you say no on belay :)
