Comments: Can you lower with a 70m from the anchors? I see some conflicting info on the route length in the description and some of the comments.

Thanks!

Comments: Definitely a classic climb with a great position on the Flatiron! Everything about the climb was super fun. All pitches have a bunch of bolts, but none are entirely bolted.

I felt like pitch 1 was the crux for me with some really wide stemming through 2 different sections, protected nicely(maybe just hard because it was the first pitch after the hike in).

As mentioned linking 2&3 should be done as you barely need to place gear on pitch 2.

Pitch 3 is a breeze and another awesome stemming... more >>

Comments: Does anyone know if there are 1 or 2 bolts at the belay on top of pitch 3 and what kind of shape they are in?

Comments: The starting area is identified by a small flat 3 x 2 boulder sitting alone at the base. The route goes up the chossy hand crack to a small roof. Pull the roof on the left hand side and enjoy the great stemming & jamming to the top.

Suggested rack is on with the 3x .75-1s, but Id drop the 3s(or maybe only bring one). The only place youd use it is low and theres lots of options. Dont forget to bring a few tips and finger sized cams for the section above the roof.

It doesnt look lik... more >>

Comments: I agree with Ryan, super fun climbing. Quite cruxy, separated with good rests to quell the pump. At the top it steepens and is a fantastic sequence of moves.

For the onsight Id say maybe 2x purple-yellow master cams, and singles from .3-1 C4. I even placed a bomber red ball nut for kicks below the flat jug. A green C3 a few feet above the .75 slot helped mentally and caught a few good lobs I took when gunning for the chains. The gear is pretty sequencey, so JJs advice above on what to... more >>

Comments: Overall a very fun climb. Lots of varied movement and good fun on every pitch. Pitch 2 has some really fantastic lie-backing. Also, it felt a lot more adventurous than anything over on Barks Canyon Wall, but the rock quality was mostly solid when on route(P3 has a bit of so-so stuff). There is a bit of spice here and there, but if there wasnt any spice then Im not sure it would qualify as a Supes route!

Comments: I haven't been to Iso in awhile, but in the past we've always taken a car and been fine. We usually park at a small open area on the right of the road, 200 yards or so shy of where the high clearance vehicles park. Unless the road conditions have dramatically changed, you'll have no issues.

Comments: This line, Pocket Full of Rainbows, and Bon Bons In Space all share the same anchor. Currently, it has one good bolt and one decent one, but both hangers are very rusty. Not sure I'd trust them for anything but rapping. That said, the left two lines are really cool and quite steep on huge pockets.

Comments: After I got out there, I realized I traversed a bit too low. There is a new bolt about 15' higher that you can get too by traversing straight over too it.

Comments: Great route, a must-do if at CFE. Pro is great, tricky to get that last piece the pod as that's also your best hand hold!

Comments: Cool route, very thin and lots of hard moves. 1st bolt is a bit high, but the crux section is very well protected.

Comments: Pulling the roof was fun. Mostly face climbing after that. 1 bolt on top with a .5 sized crack next to it for the anchor.

Comments: That's awesome! A few questions-

-Is the road in good enough shape to get back there with a 2wd car?

-Does coming in from this side save time over the original way?

-Are you rapping in from above the canyon rim or just following a trail in?

Thanks and can't wait to get back out to LDE! Can't believe it has almost been a year since I've been out there...

Comments: A good hard pitch indeed! For the onsight rack I suggest 3x grey-yellow TCU's and 2x .5-1, +small/medium nuts. The beginning is easy, but tread carefully as there is some loose stuff still. The brunt of the climb is thin fingers with a few hidden thank god holds here and there. The top section looks hard to protect from below, but good options show up. A long pitch, not sure if a 60m would make it?

Comments: Amazing pitch! Lots of varied climbing and plenty of tough moves separated by good rests. I'd recommend saving a #1/#2 camalot for the horizontal above the roof.

Comments: A very technical and sustained climb. Lots of committing high stepping and LB, with good fingers but little in the way of feet. Great small gear the whole way, but definitely not an easy tick. Used 2x purple to red Metolius and a few nuts to sew it up.
