Comments: This is a great route. Of the many Flatiron solos, I enjoyed this one a lot. It's up there with Angel's Way and the 3rd in my book. It's got some lichen, but its' pretty straightforward and mostly clean. We found good face holds to the right of the crack on the "crux". The ridge is awesome, super easy, and beautiful climbing. Should be 4 stars, a must do!

Comments: I agree with Bicknell. A good route. Can be done easily and still give some butterflies in the 'taint spot.

While comparable, I enjoyed this climb much more than Lone Eagle.

The rap beta here on MP is right on. Easy rap route, however the top summit block rappel anchor was torn and chewed (marmots) as of July '11. We didn't stop to fix it, instead chose the downclimb to the first bolt station (which was scary for the second). Thanks for the rappel topo!

Comments: This Classic is kind of a pile. Yes, it is exposed on the 3rd and 5th pitches and the 5.8 variations are more challenging, but the rock is mostly a choss pile interspersed with some fun clean rock. The pins are plentiful to clip if you dare. Super sharp fins and/or edges could be rope cutters very easily in a fall and they exist everywhere on the route. A good tick off the list, but overall I was not super impressed.

Oh, the approach trail is not at all obvious (as many guidebooks say) if ... more >>

Comments: Joe Lee Wrote:

"On the approach trail, make a right at the base of the cliff. And then continue left up the stone steps. After the first wood staircase, turn left onto a flat granite area with a slab above it. This is the start. The second pitch is actually pretty good. The third pitch is badass. "

This is good beta for the traveling climber without a guidebook. Right on the money.
I agree, the second pitch is pretty good, very nice actually, not too hard if you've suffered through some wid... more >>

Comments: Felt awfully hard for a 5.10-, but I am out of shape. Super fun and hard at the crux. Too thin for comfortable jams.
