the only place I felt like I needed pro, there was none. I thought the 1st pitch was the crux, of coarse we also did it wet, that probably did not help. Definatly a friction pitch. Standard rack.

Description:

The climb looks cool, but I thought the 3rd was way nicer. It was definatly fun to run to the top of this thing. The ridge toward the top is the coolest, most exposed part, with several false summits.

Descent Options:

A single rappell off of the back, the anchors are obvious.

4 out of 5 stars 1st flatiron

A great place to go if you have not climbed in a while, and need to practice, or you just want to get a lot of pitches in quickly.
