Flatirons this Sunday?

Postby Brian C » Fri Apr 12, 2013 2:49 pm

Anybody want to climb in the Flatirons on Sunday? I'd be happy to lead every pitch if I go with somebody less experienced and am open for suggestions on what to climb.

This is assuming it doesn't rain a whole bunch.

Brian,
I am feeling under the weather right now. If I'm feeling better by Sunday, I'd be very interested and open to a bunch of routes.

Incredible day! Big thanks to Brian and Nat. Can't wait to get back up and finish this route when the wind isn't so nasty.

Yes indeed. Very windy and cold, but still very fun. I really liked how Brian was willing to share his vast knowledge and made sure Sam had a great first experience on the rock. It doesn't get any better than this.

p.s. I will pm you the photos.

Hi, are you still wanting to get on the flatirons? I'm looking for people climb one of them this weekend or next. I can lead trad up to 5.8 unless it's a super run-out. I just moved to Boulder, and I'm dying to find someone to climb them with!

I'd be down to climb Boulder area...but I'm mostly only in Boulder during winter (~8 months of the year :-D ).
