Comments: The shortest summit route of the numbered Flatirons would be the Fourth - it's summit is less than seven feet from the ground!

Comments: Tom's right, there is a loose block:

Loose!


It's manageable though, as you would start on the S. side of that pyramid block just below it, and traverse N. to gain easy access to the slot, using the top of the pyramid black for your hands.

I'd give this route a start just for uniqueness in the area and as an interesting way to gain the summit of the Flatironette, when linking formations. From the top, you can then downclimb C... more >>

Comments: If you think you're going to get benighted by the time you get to the junction knob (end of P4 in this description), you don't have to finish the route by continuing on the N. Arete. Instead, go north towards the ridge, instead of up There's usually a cable/tat to rap. off of, or scramble. That will take 5 pitches off how it's described on this page.

This bailout is descried in Roach's book.

Comments: If you start on Freeway, you can exit that right to the left simply by walking off and to the left - there is no V2 boulder problem that must be negotiated:

While on Freeway, just stay on the highest, left most rib, and find the correct place to exit off of it into a shallow gully. This will be very much before the jump on Freeway, but will be the same, leftmost rib that the jump apexes at. Once in the shallow gully, traverse left up to very red rib that sits lower than the rib you exited off ... more >>

Location: Colorado : Boulder : Flatirons : North : Second Flatiron : South Sneak (5.2)
By: Long Ranger When: Nov 7, 2016

Comments: Quite an exhilarating route, what with the amount of exposure to the South. I took some variation of this that worked out fine. At the old bolts, I backtracked just a few feet down and pulled over the dihedral to another ramp system for a little while and maybe did something similar once (or twice?) again, until I was on top of the South Block. Passed the arch, which was cool. Never got to the tree, or the, "broken area", as Roach calls it - everything was SOLID! Sa... more >>


Location: Colorado : Boulder : Flatirons : Central : Hammerhead : Yodeling Moves (5.0)
By: Long Ranger When: Oct 20, 2016

Comments: The enormous bucket holds seemed much easier to spot on the downclimb, soloists.

Seems like an obvious variation could be to do a Yodeling Moves Direct: starting from the ground on the West side, just a little left of where you eventually traverse to, higher up. Large holds seem to be there, just not as many. It seemed more like 20 feet, rather than 100 feet at that point. No real pro, I doubt, but doesn't look harder than... 5.6?

Comments: Climbing on top of the arch is totally unreal. Anyone spy the crack forming width-wise right in the middle of it?!

Comments: The roofs you need to negotiate are actually really fun with good holds if you search. Grab the holds, paste your feet up high, and commit!

Comments: Started up the highest mound of pine needles I could find! to access very shallow, puzzle piece crack. Downclimb was def. a fun one. Pinch those pebbles!

Comments: I mistakenly downclimbed this route after Yodeling Moves, thinking it was the much easier Last Flatironette or Lost Flatironette, and what they hay - it was right in front of me. Everything went fine until just before the tree - there's no real way to avoid the Suck by going north - you'll just hit pine needle infested ledges and some pretty hollow sounding flakes. The dropoff below is pretty severe.

Luckily, there is a way off the ridge to the south not ... more >>

Comments: A great route! The technical parts are more sustained than the similarly rated NW Gully, which is really a lot of Class 3/4 terrain to a two move crux. The exposure and views are off the charts. Holds are plentiful and secure, especially for the fact that you're always climbing on or near a huge crack/flake system. It continuously gets steeper until the crux section then eases up again at the top to hiking terrain.

Plenty of places for pro (although we solo'@SEMICOL... more >>
