Description

This is really an exciting, little, connection pitch between Friday's Folly & West Door. From the top of Friday's Folly & the western eye bolts, you continue up linking features which include a difficult to protect, wide cracks (with a pin), corners, and even some arete moves (7 R). You can belay out left below the overhang of West Door or at the eyebolt for the 2nd rap off the 3rd Flatiron.

It's probably not a destination climb, but it does serve to make for a nice linkup up the backside to the summit.

This was originally described under G. Bell's West Door entry.

Location

On the SW aspect of the 3rd Flatiron, between Friday's Folly and West Door.

Protection

A crafty bugger will find more than the 5 pieces of pro here that I did. Nonetheless, it is not much.

Climbing this directly up the arete to the edge and staying on that arete is harder, has less gear and is a little heads-up for gear but offers some variety. You end up above the 2nd bolted belay a way and have to build an anchor of small cams and small/med nuts. Jan 27, 2013

This isn't a climb to approach lightly. There is one 30 footish section where it is imposible to place pro and serious fall could result. This same section also contains the hardest parts of the climb. As soon as I finished the unprotectable part, I jammed about three pieces in within a five foot span to make myself feel better. Be confident at the grade and be prepared for what feels like a free solo. Come equipped with big cahones or lack of grey matter. Aug 26, 2008
