Third Flatiron - College Dropout (5.7S)

Postby Brian C » Mon Aug 06, 2012 2:12 pm

I figured a few folks might like this so I thought I'd post it. Here is a neat seldom-traveled route on the Third Flatiron that is exciting and totally worth doing. You can have the Third all to yourself even when the standard route is packed.

I couldn't agree more, It was my first trad route (following crossfitter). The standard was choked with people while Kris and I had this one to ourselves.

I'd love to climb this with you. I'll lead the early goings and you can take the 7 R's....tomorrow ngiht...you know you want to \:D/
You can touch the void, just don't fall into it.
