Comments: Just my opinion. 5.4 - if you don't mind exposure. 5.5- if you dislike exposure

Comments: I thought this would be a nice solo scramble... NO it really wasn't.The rock was really dirty and spooky friction. Perhaps I was off route but I was more or less on the north side of the east face.

Comments: Wow!! This is a really fantastic route. The quality of rock is excellent. The first pitch if you are of average height is spooky, it took me two moves to reach the nice hold. If you are taller you can reach it in one. I would grade it 5.6 personally. The face is consistent and I thought steep, exposed, and with standard flatiron runouts but we stayed towards the north edge. With the small roofs and steep climbing on the upper part of east face.. it was just plain fun and well worth the hik... more >>

Comments: Climbed up to first flake. But here we angled north a bit and crossed over the gap, don't forget to look down. Belayed at a huge tree. From here climb a slab and then there is a cool crack with friction for the feet. Offers up a couple hand jams and then climb over towards the left through a gap and walk off. Obviously we should have stayed towards the left for Yodeling Moves..... but entertaining none the less. Not much pro and the crack move was harder than 5th class. A healthy solo alt... more >>

Comments: Make it interesting and don't use a guidebook but use your own routefinding. Lots of nifty variations on this wonderful ridge traverse. Mostly 3rd class. If you enjoy scrambling this one is for you.. LOL

Comments: The crux for me was the traverse on the first pitch. I stand at 5'6" and could not reach any holds and not a lot for the feet either. Found this to be frustrating. Any advice would help?? My friend Tim Feaver is much taller and the move was much easier for him. The second pitch is all about the grunt factor and doing whatever it takes as long as you are moving forward but really does protect well so go crazy. Getting off the top is not all that bad even though it was in the dark and no prio... more >>

Comments: First pitch is relatively uneventful. The second pitch is however very fun with some thoughful airy moves and there are a few route variations to choose from. No crowds and due to the rocks high position in the canyon provides really great views. In the evening you are treated with a sunset over the divide.

This route is not climbed often so watch out for the sneaky lichen.

Comments: Found the rock to be dirty with lichen and loose in places. Like most Flatiron climbs the belay anchors are wimpy, but the climbing is straightforward. The route swings left and right, use long slings.

Comments: My better half and I really enjoyed this climb. Great views and quality rock. The climbing is not that hard but the climb goes on forever. Add that up and it is good old fashioned fun. If you are just looking to go out for a easy going day this is it. We in fact stopped after the first pitch at a small tree ledged oasis for a picnic. Shaded, quiet, and perfect for a midday nap. Depending on what line you take on first pitch the grade can push 5.4 and whatever you do climb to the summit of... more >>

Comments: Follow the crack up using awkard jamming and slab work. Above you the crack will begin to arch towards a point far left. Eventually you will have to turn the corner back towards the right. I placed a #2 Camalot here before committing to the move. Turning this corner was exciting and felt like the crux with very balancy moves and a funky jam. Once established on the other side of this I started to continue up the crack which was still growing wider. Safe to say ran out of big pro with the a... more >>

Comments: Used a 50 meter rope and belayed at the top of the ramp system. This belay provided good pro and space for the second. The 2nd pitch started straight up a pocketed face for twenty feet and offers a few places for pro before traversing to the left across a sloping ledge. (5.3) You can place a .5 Camalot before the traverse and a #1 Camalot after in order to protect the second. From here you should see the large belay ledgeGuy refers to with the slot directly above, head for that and haul up t... more >>
