Location: CO : Boulder : Flatirons : South : The Keel : Northeast Ridge (4th)

Comments: Most of The Keel is pretty easy climbing, but the last bit of climbing to the summit is a bit more than Class 4 I thought, a tiny bit of route finding and some actually committing moves. Nice summit. The downclimb to the South isn't so bad. Reverse the summit moves, the find the deep and narrow slot straight down on the S side. Keep scrambling to the east of that slot, until you're above an open book. Good holds make this an easy stem to the ground.

Comments: There's actually a even easier downclimb than the spike flake, or the dirty ramp - just keep going a bit more south on the ridge, until the ridge turns precipitously down - this is where you're sorta cliffed out. Turn around, and look for the last tree on the ridge, just to the NW. The west face of the Slab at this point is only 15 or so feet high and dead vertical. There's a small ledge in the middle and copious handholds. Get... more >>

Comments: Maybe my partner can fill in more information, but we found NO rap station, tree, or any other sign of a place to rap off of from the summit of this formation, and putting together a rap line was tedious and dangerous (tiny trees, loose blocks that let loose). I think the most realistic way to descend from the summit of the formation is to downclimb the upper east face route. We were somewhat of the idea that you cannot get to the easy upper east face route, without first climbing the lower, 5.7... more >>

Comments: Super fun solo. If this was near Chat., it would see near constant traffic.

Not much gear placements to be had.

Comments: I'm a little sad the tongue near the initial bulge is much shorter than it used to be. That was a nice piece of rock to grab, to bring you up to the bulge.

Comments: Wow, I've never found the hole/tunnel... yet! The crux for me was near the summit, there's a delicate traverse on the right side that reminds me of the crux boulder on Broadway on Long's. Airy! After being on that rounded arete for so long!

The other awesome move is gaining the ridge again after a small downclimb. Feet aren't so good, and the next part is not connected to what you're standing on, but you can lean into the next piece, catching your fall with your hand, find a big jug and haul yo... more >>

Comments: There's a very large flake on the L side of the, "10 foot step " on the Second Flatironette. It looks like one could use it to get on top of the step, but it's a little sketch as it will move if you touch it. I lamely went to the L of the step, and traversed over a bit.

It's actually pretty weird, I think I've started on Freeway before and traversed left after a while and downclimbed the "wall" you're supposed to climb up looking for this route. Finding nothing appealing, I just climbed back u... more >>

Comments: LuisC, one option is Free For All @ 5.6.

The Pullman Car on the second makes it difficult to climb the Second, like you can the First and the Third. Pulling over the Pullman Car would be a pretty heady solo for sure. (~5.9+)

Comments: I remember bumping into Buzz, after he just downclimbed Gorrel's. My knowledge of the area (none), the appearance of a line (questionable), and the description of his moves (devious) made me curious but cautious. Today, I scoped it out from the bottom, and it indeed went super fine. A great soloable line from the bottom of the Notch, to the top of the Beaver (or vice versa!). The move on the flake is def. the highlight, although the jamming in the crack system is also pretty fun. The views from ... more >>

By: LongRanger When: Jul 19, 2015

Comments: Absolute classic.

Upper portions of Kiener's have great variations - you don't have to trend up and right, if you don't want to. Doing so, will lead you to easier ground after the third crux (chock stone), but if you follow your nose up after the wet chimney (crux #2), there's Choose Your Own Adventure climbing all around you.

Stay between the R side of the Notch Couloir and the "Little Notch", for more sustained scrambling on ledges and slabs. With intelligent route finding, you can k... more >>

Comments: Awesome route for the slabmonger! We decided to cut up a social trail, before hitting the talus pile of the main trail and right after the turnoff for East Face Direct, partly because RMR had a operation going on and were holding up traffic near the talus. Our first pitch on a 70m didn't quite make it to Baker's Way from where we started the first belay, which makes me believe we started a little too low. Next time, I'd just take the actual trail, and head off it, exactly as Brian describes. Tha... more >>

Comments: Although routes on the Flatirons are pretty "Choose Your Adventure", I think Dodge Block does not share the same walk off as Freeway but instead puts you in a gully just west and up from where you walk off on Freeway. One side of the gully you exit in Dodge Block is the Pullman Car.

Comments: It's a funky route, as you start on Freeway (which itself starts a little lacking on holds, polished, and grubby), then eases off in steepness. If you stay as left as possible on the rib, it's easy to, uh, "Exit" into area between the Freeway route and the South Block, making the ascending traverse towards the trees and above the chimney-ish part seem a little more natural.

Once you go around the Pullman Car, it seems that you should try to keep on the south side of this block, but it's much e... more >>
