Comments: Incredible climb. Not sure why the description recommends quitting after 2 pitches. That's a waste in my opinion. Pitch 3 was GREAT, pulling the roof is fun. Exciting exposure, committing moves but relatively easy. You don't get those combinations many places. Finish with Rebuffet's Arete!

I combined the first 2 pitches, recommended unless you have a beginner leader wanting to lead the first short chill pitch. Pitch 2 is stiff! and fun! Save some small cams for the top of the dihedral, ... more >>

Comments: I'm not sure what all the fuss about the first pitch is. I thought it was a soft PG-13. There's a decent micronut before the rightward traverse.

Comments: Fun route, but not even close to 420 feet. I soloed and brought my wife up 2nd. I ran my whole 70m rope out for the first pitch, was about 30 feet from the summit. My guess is 250 feet.

Comments: I believe I started at in the correct area for this climb, but I am guessing I did not follow the route, as I encountered very little 5.2 climbing. MUCH harder than Diagonals or some of the other 5.2s on the Slab. That being said, it was also probably the most fun I have had on a Flatiron solo. I think most of the climbing I did was in the 5.5-5.7 range, I mostly stuck to the steeper lines. The climbing is great, lots of juggy, steep, even some short overhang sections with slab interspersed.... more >>

Comments: Warning! There is a rather large wasp's nest waiting for you shortly after the first clip. Move on to the face, get a move in, and bam, they are swirling around you angrily. Got stung 3 times, luckily its a fairly easy section, scrambled quickly past it, swatting with one hand. Definitely makes the 5.8 a bit more interesting, maybe not worth it though.

Comments: Fun route, but it really seemed to be a one (2?) move wonder. The roof is sequency and challenging, if you use the holds on the left face. I thought it was 10a, unfortunately, the rest of the climb is an easy 8 or less.

Comments: It definitely dirt, a lot of lichen up top, but still a fun route. I did the 9 and 10 start. I would call the 10 start a 10-, it didn't seem much harder than the 9 start, and before you know it you're back on the same route. I did like fact that it is mixed, placing gear increased the fun.

Comments: Climbed this route today...fun route, not sure about 5.9, maybe the 3rd pitch was 5.9, the rest was more 5.8ish.

On a separate note, it appears that someone took my rope bag from the base of the climb while I was out (I am hoping by mistake?). If you have it, please message me. It's possible I missed it, it was getting quite dark by the time we got back. If you find a dark green Metolious bag, let me know!
