Description:

Nice route, great for multipitch beginners. Kind of like going for a hike on the side of a rock. You always have a nice view while belaying. First 5 belays are at giant eyebolts, with the last bolt at the top right of the 'C'. For the standard 6th pitch, go up and slightly left above the belay to a very easy steep section and continue up excellently featured rock almost 200 feet to a great belay (look carefully for a large hole to thread and a rock horn to sling). For the 7th pitch, traverse right to a large chockstone that allows you to step over the 'gash' and continue up the runout crux to the summit. A direct sixth pitch, that is right after you leave the last eyebolt, and cross the 'gash', you can keep climbing until you get to the top of the gash if you have a 60 m rope. It is really tight to make it to this belay, but its a great place to belay because of the crack, ledge and big boulder which accompany it. Be sure to allow plenty of time if you are belaying all of the 7 pitches.

5 out of 5 stars Seems easier than 5.4

I've done this route a few times, it's always a great way to relax on a nice long route.

4 out of 5 stars Solo Ascent of 3rd Flatiron, East Face, Right side, Boulder Colorado.

Roped solo ascent: Climb; rappell and clean; climb again. No crowd; fun day. Passed by 2 free soloists around 1 1/2 pitches from the top. No one else seen on the route that day.
