THIRD FLATIRON - A 1,000 ft, Moderate

WE HAVE 5 LEADERS AND THEIR 5 SECONDS/FOLLOWERS/GEAR CLEANERS AND UNLESS MORE LEADERS COME FORWARD WE ARE MAXED OUT AT 10 FOLKS TOTAL. THEY ARE ANDREW, BRIAN, DOUG, CORY, STEVEN, CAROLYN, DAVID, KARI, CHRIS AND ROBIN. I WILL UPDATE ASAP IF ANYTHING CHANGES AND FINAL UPDATE AT 4.30PM ON MONDAY.

I WILL BE WRITING TO THOSE NOT INCLUDED ABOVE.

MATT, DID YOU SORT SOMETHING OUT WITH NICK?

Ignore the 7 am time - we are meeting at 5 AM at Chautauqua. We will meet at Chautauqua Park, Ranger Station at 5 am on Tuesday, 14th August and climb the Third Flatiron (in the short-term see details of the meetup on 3rd August to the Third - I will give full details here in due course). And early start to beat the crowds and the heat.
We want to move fast and will probably have teams on two, moderate routes, each at about 5.4 or so, with 3 fine raps for each from the summit. In addition we want to keep teams to 2 climbers, one an experienced leader and a second who can climb well and clean gear. These routes are moderate in grade but - 1,000 feet and 3 raps is a lot of stuff!


AGAIN: A 5 am meetup and on the trail to the crag by 5.05 am.

    Thanks to all and my very trusty simul seconds. Kari, you were real cool on simul and also first time with me on rock. And you cleaned with aplomb and you and David- brave, coordinated and happy stuff

    Amazing climb today - thank you to Robin, my patient, talented and fearless leader, and to David, my fellow "simul climber"! Brian - thank you so much for setting up the rappel down! Chris and Doug - it was great chatting it up at each belay station. It was such a pleasure to ascend the Third Flatiron with such safe and at the same time fun people!

    Laura, Anna and Chad, if two of you are available on a same weekday, or even on a separate weekend day, you can join me. I enjoy repeats, only request that you'd be comfortable on starting rappel. Contact me via E-mail, things can work out. I prefer no more than team of three, but can repeat a week apart.

    August 14, 2012

  • Robin N.

    Again, sorry Chad Laura and Anna but have lost 2 leaders. Also apologies for late notice but was climbing a Flatiron today and had to rush to host Movement meetup

    August 13, 2012

  • Robin N.

    Laura, Anna and Chad,
    Sorry but new leader has teamed up withh Matt and one leader has had to drop out - so no space available tomorrow . Let's find a date and get you on a Flatiron!
    Anna, good to meet you tonight and glad you can make it to 11-mile this weekend

    August 13, 2012

  • Matt

    Robin,

    Will and I will be partners. We will see you at 5am.

    August 13, 2012

  • Laura

    As of last night: Laura, Anna and Chad..........................are one of you still available for a 5am start?
    What are the other options? I do not have to rush back to work.

    August 13, 2012

  • Matt

    Hey Will i can follow if you want to lead only thing is I have to be at work at 10:30am on Tuesday so we would have to move fairly fast. Let me know if you still want to go.

    Hello guys, sounds like you may have already worked out the logistics of tomorrows climb. But I just got back in town and would really love to climb the 3rd flatiron. I can second, or be a third in a group no problem. If there is still a open second, or someone willing to climb with 3 I am more than willing to be out there at 5am, I lead[masked]'s so shouldn't be holding anyone up. Thanks
    -Moss

  • Robin N.

    Ok, Nick - thanks for update and have fun tomorrow. I will be on Second tomorrow

    August 12, 2012

  • Will S.

    Do you need another leader? I'm new to the group and to Boulder, but I comfortable leading anything on the 3rd. I should be at Movement tomorrow so hopefully I'll meet some of you there. No worries if your teams have already been decided and there's not room.

    August 12, 2012

  • Robin N.

    Well done

    No problem! Since I wrote that we went out and climbed the Third. :-) led four pitches to the top. That night climbing with a forced free solo is decidedly only a one time thing for me. Five hours car-to-car although we finished at midnight and it should be quicker in the day.

    August 10, 2012

  • Robin N.

    Nick is right

    August 9, 2012

    I might be able to attend if there is still room. When do you think we'd be done, Robin?

    Anyone want to carpool if coming from Denver? [masked]

    August 9, 2012

  • Matt

    I have to work at 10:30 so I would love to fly up this thing. I have done some following of trad and I am comfortable removing gear. I might need to rap and then sprint down to the parking lot but I work right in town so it shouldnt be a problem.

    August 8, 2012

  • Robin N.

    Steven it should be no problem and can give you "primer" if we meet before. If a piece did seem stuck Doug would be right behind you to clean it too. Cory places things - 'gently'

    Great and pl see my email with Monday and Tuesday beta for you

  • Robin N.

    Doug, David and I did a fantastic 7-pitch 5.5 on First Flatiron today - right to summit with a nice 100 ft rap off

    August 7, 2012

  • Robin N.

    No problem and just brought my stash down yesterday from high hills so have plenty as a rack for you and one for Doug

    Robin, sounds good to me! Keep in mind that I never cleaned trad gear, but I can't see it been that difficult.

    August 7, 2012

  • Robin N.

    Steven, sounds like very good experience so please come along and join the group. I think you are down for our gym and Mountain Rose meets, this Mon and Wed, respectively - look forward to meeting you
