  • Description 

    This amazing line starts down low in a pit type area, with a bit of a slanted landing. It's a slightly overhanging crimpface on super solid rock. Start with two small crimps close together with a left heelhook and a right toehook. Bust up to a left sidepull crimp, move feet and then a lengthy move into a terribly small righthand crimp. From there, you've got some more moves on small holds and into a decent edge, and to the lip. Should turn out to be a very proud and sick line.


    As you hike up the trail and reach the end of the bouldering area, there's a tall boulder with a maroon and green lichen face to your right. The project line is 20-25 feet to its right in the pit area.


    Two to three pads.

    This thing has me Psyched! It's pretty damn cold up there right now so not much progress lately. As soon as some sunny days roll around, I'm hittin' it up.

    Nice to know who's responsible for all the ugly tick marks and ridiculous amounts of chalk marring this beautiful area.

    Wow. That's kinda rude, Clack.

    Clack, I've been climbing with Misha for years, and if you're suggesting that he is marring an area, you are mistaken. Maybe you need to get your facts right before you accuse someone, or not do it at all.

    Yeah...Clack is a super douche! He needs a good marring if you ask me.

    Any updates on the problem? Has anyone gotten the FA?

    mA77y, there's too much snow up there right now. The Third Flatiron blocks out all the sunlight up there until early summer. The route is climbable up to the lip. From there, it's all snow on the topout slab. Maybe a broom and some warm days, and the proj. will go.... The weather forecast looks great for the upcoming week, maybe some snow will melt.

    So where exactly is this thing? I can't seem to find it.

    Keep marching up there, Misha, and get that thing done.

    I wish I could, Darth.... Just got back from camping/bouldering in the Poudre Canyon and my fingers are raging destroyed right now. Maybe next time, brother. Let me know though how it goes for you up there today.

    Very nice, Darth. Good work, man. We should meet up one of these days and hike up there. I'd like to see some other beta besides my own.

    Any ascents yet?!

    I climbed this thing earlier today. There was a lot of chalk on it and since it's been on this site for more than a year it seems unlikely I was the first. Great problem regardless.

    Very cool, Greenspan! What do you think as far as the grade?
    By Ryan Silven

    I just did this boulder yesterday. It's surprisingly good despite being small and a little on the sharp side. While working on it, I broke a crucial thumb catch (leaving another) and cleaned and used an intermediate that was previously untouched. Now I understand the fragile nature of Flatirons stone, and I know that different people will climb the same boulder in different ways, but this boulder has all the earmarks of a climb that was tried but maybe not done. If Greenspan would care to share his or her sequence as well as thoughts on how hard they thought this line to be, maybe I would be less skeptical regarding their ascent.
