Description Suggest change

This is another great Flatiron classic. It is a little different than your standard, "easy" Flatiron route. Half way up the east ridge, you climb over the longest arch in Boulder. Try not to think too hard about what would happen if it breaks. The final pitch is airy, since it traverses the overhanging west face through some ledge systems. The rock is solid, except for a 10 foot section.

P1 & P2: Follow the east ridge for 400 feet. Stay within a few feet of the south edge to enjoy the exposure.

P3: Climb on top of a 6 foot boulder that is against the NW corner of the summit block. Traverse the ledge system moving up at the obvious points. The bucket holds appear as you climb to kept this at the 5.0 level.

Descent: Downclimb the last pitch or do an overhanging rappel off of the NW side of the summit block. Don't forget to Yodel....
