Freeway doesn't actually go to the summit of the Second, but is a great easy 5.0 cruise and very commonly soloed.
From the point where the trail meets the rock, head up the relatively low angle slabs for several hundred feet. The easiest way is never harder than 5.0 and harder variations are possible. After about 500 feet, you will end up on a small summit separated from the rest of the flatiron. Jump a cross the notch(much easier and safer than it looks).
The hardest part of the route is above here. Climb another few hundred feet of easy rock to the top of the ridgeline. A 30 foot cliff prevents a downclimb, but thats good because this part is fun. Climb up and right up steeper rock until the ridge meets the trail. Say hello to the hikers, and stroll back to your car.
