Rock Climbing Photo: Me scaring years off my mom's life
I landed in Denver on Sunday to snow and cold. I'm here until Wednesday afternoon and would love to run up the Flatirons if they're climbable. Are they going to be good to go by early Wednesday morning? Austin Baird

With the exception of a few cups here and there, the 1st and 2nd should be in fine shape by Wednesday (3rd still closed for falcons). Probably fine Tuesday afternoon but likely to find some soggy spots here and there. Adamant D

Trails are a little muddy, with some ice up high in shaded areas, but the rock is dry. Just the occasional bowl of water in convex areas, but completely avoidable. Kris Holub

I agree with Kris. Sorry for not posting last night. The 2nd is completely dry with the exception of the tunnel variation. The tunnel itself is pretty seepy, but pretty easy to avoid the wet stuff.

The first is entirely dry except for the down climb which has water in most of the pockets. They are easy to avoid however.

I would say it is 100% perfect shape for a fun day of scrambling
