More information:
I started climbing as a teen in the Midwest in the 80's... I moved to Boulder County in search of more rock in 1995. Eldo is now my home away from home. I usually climb trad or solo and like longer routes best, but I also occasionally climb aid or sport. I don't generally boulder.

I once counted and had climbed 800+ routes in Eldorado Canyon (with repeats, it would have been uncountable), 800+ in Boulder Canyon, 600+ in the Flatirons and a few hundred or more each in the SSV, Lumpy Ridge, the South Plate, Vedauvoo and Indian creek. I also like to climb in RMNP and other alpine areas locally and nationally. My favorite road trips are to Joshua Tree - CA(300+ routes), Red Rocks - NV (~200 routes) and my home crag of over a decade ago, Red River Gorge, KY (hundreds, but never counted).

The size and position of the Lost and Found Flatiron are shown well in this aerial photo.  Compare it to the Matron (which it dwarfs) or Redgarden Wall, in the low foreground.  A birds-eye vies of the S. Summit of Green Mt.  Visible here are the Standard E Face Route (left, as published) and the 2014 route described on the 3rd tower (right, as climbed).  A birds-eye view of the Devil's Wings as seen from the East (from a glider).  The Narrows of Boulder Canyon (starting with Cob Rock) as seen from just above....  Jamcrack Spire from above and West.  The big dihedrals and cracks are visible from here.
