Comments: Not sure what that's about. Was the X on loose looking rock? Maybe it's marking buried treasure?

Comments: Dan,
As of now there is no application for bolts, but there is talk. Of course it could only happen with Matt's blessing.

Comments: As of today we can remove the X. This thing is now fully bolted.
8 bolts and a two bolt anchor

Huge thanks to the Flatiron Climbing Counsil and OSMP for allowing new bolts in the Flatirons and a special thanks to Matt for a great line and his blessing for the upgrade. It's already seeing traffic.

Comments: Approaching from Skunk Canyon is very easy after the flood. It was easy to avoid the little poison ivy that we saw.
First pitch is probably 5.4 and well-protected. Continue to the first good ledge above the poison ivy patch.
2nd pitch: to the stance on ridge.
3rd to the notch where the final pitch begins. 70m.
4th to top.
There was no fixed gear except for a sling at the thread near the top crux.

Comments: I followed Roach's description. I don't think I exited right at the right place. Sure seemed harder than 5.0. The kids up top throwing rocks down at me might have made it seem harder than it was. I did end up at the same walk off as Freeway. If you go up through the tunnel variation, it won't be the same. Overall, it wasn't as clean and fun as Freeway.

Comments: Wholly %#€#!!! This chimney looks so easy from the bottom, but it turns out to be pretty hard and scary. Harder than Hatch, Rehatch, and Taking Care of Business all put together! Might as well solo, 'cause the only gear comes after the many cruxes. A #5 would probably help 2/3 of the way up. I had a tipped out #4 on mossy rock, and it was the only decent placement on the whole pitch. It probably wouldn't feel hard if the rock was solid, but it's not.

Comments: If you belay at the first gear/ledge at 120 feet, you can reach the top from here with a 70. So, no more than 360 feet total....

Rap tree?

You might not want to use this tree anymore. It's very dead and barely holding a big, loose rock.

Comments: Isn't this the same route as Rug Munchers?
We followed the left-facing dihedral/water groove. When the corner ended, we crossed the red rock to the left. We belayed at the ledge below the water groove/slot that Guy mentions. It looked fun, but it was way easier to step back right and up the left-facing flakes.
