This is a great single pitch route on the backside of the Third Flatiron. Be aware that it is very close to the rappel route and it may be an unwise idea to climb this route if people are descending from the summit.

The most fun way to reach this route is to climb the East Face, and rap down the back of the Third. This will deposit you at the bottom of Friday's Folly. Climb up the obvious crack on the corner until it is possible to step around the corner to the right (after about 10 feet.) From here, follow the cracks and holds up the vertical face with great exposure. Belay at one of the two eyebolts 70 feet off the ground.


A set of nuts and a set of cams.
