Friday August 6 2010 - Flatirons, Boulder Colorado

Well, it's not rope solo, but it was a ton of fun. My wife and I met up with a friend at Flatiron parking area. In between the typical late afternoon thunder/rain we booked it up the trail to the Second Flatiron and we solo climbed the first pitch then ducked off to the ravine and hiked down. It was my wife's first solo that couldn't be considered a "highball". It was slab climbing, which is very different from the quartzite/sandstone or limestone that I've been climbing. Tons of fun.
