Description

This line has undoubtedly been toproped for decades. So, it should be seen as a community route. The bolting and first leads were done by the Front Range Climbing Stewards during the two summers that they rebuilt the Third Flatiron descent trail (north side). The route ascends the steep, colorful wall to the right of Friday's Folly, starting just right of a cave. Even with bolts, the route-finding is challenging, and the climbing is fairly continuous, high quality 5.10. The well-protected crux (5.11b) is the last 15 feet below the anchors.

Location

From the back (west side) of the Third Flatiron, scramble 40 feet down slabs to the low point of the south face.

Protection

10 protection bolts and a double bolt anchor. A 60 meter rope is needed.

I agree with Steve - terrific climbing and pretty hard at the end for only 11b. Even though it's been toproped for decades, it was brand new to me today. Thanks, BB and FRCS! Aug 19, 2018
