There are plenty of ways to get in trouble on the Flatirons without needing rain or wind to mess you up. It doesn't look like it, but there's plenty of subtle skills necessary to find the easy way on some of these things. With all the undergrowth, it's sometimes a reconn mission up 50 feet just to make sure you're on the right crag- I've had to DC and reaccess more than once. I had an adventure a few years ago on Satan Slab. I thought I'd be able to sneak west (left) around the roof crux and ended up on dicey 9+ well onto the west face. It took some cool nerves to eventually get back onto the creast and finish the route. Sketch kids (of course no rope or gear). Be careful out there.
