Walk 50' left of the prow of Flatiron, at a 25' flake leaning against the wall. Left side is thin, right is hands. A welded cold shut is visible 30' above. Climb up and right past bolts then left onto blocks to surmount bolt protected stem roof p1/150'/5.10c. Belay from ledge up and right. Climb easy 5th class cracks up and left to below white band of rock p2/50'. Go straight up past bolts on white band to dihedral and go right into crack that traverses left on bolt to belay on large blocks p3/80'/5.9. Traverse right into hand crack up to bolt above, go left into corner and continue up to the bolt protected roof. Finish on thin corner to belay on large ledge p4/160'/5.10c/d. Final pitch is easy 5th class for 40'. All belays are bolted except the top, so walk off is best (walk north to trail) but you can rap route w/double 60m ropes.

This route is much better than I expected and has consistently interesting climbing, especially on the 1st, 3rd, and 4th pitches. Kyle C and I did this route on Dec 28 in about 68 deg and shade and were very comfortable. We took a single set and a 70m rope, easily linking pitches 2 and 3 to make this a three pitch climb with a short scramble at the top. Excellent climbing on good rock with good protection in an interesting location makes for a classic route.
