Sweet day, out on the rock, with the wife. Beautiful climbing, beautiful weather, only problem, we ran outta water a few pitches from the top, were VERY thirsty, when we got down.

5 out of 5 stars Great Route!

Car to Car in 7 hours. First two pitches there isn't a lot of pro, after that it's easy going. Simul climb the ridge for some variation.

5 out of 5 stars Super Fun

Super fun climb, first real slab that I've done, started at 1:45 pm didn't get off the rappel until 11:00pm, lesson don't record the descent options for a route on the third flatiron when your climbing on the first.

5 out of 5 stars Fine Day with Colorado Mountain School Guide

For my 3rd rock climbing day Steve Johnson lead me up First Flatiron to the top. Long runouts and a couple of skinny holds on the first two pitches. Then "mountaineering style" rope work at the top. Couldn't have been sweeter. 9 pitches all together. Rappelled off the back. Thanks Steve
