Climbing the 3rd Flatiron

November 13, 2005



Boulder from the middle of the 3rd Flatiron.
 
 
The 3rd Flatiron is the third south from Boulder (third from right in this photo). We climbed up the front of it. Eric Su took Sarah and I climbing on what turned out to be a very cold day (40's). Here's a view toward Denver.
