Comments: What a crazy fun route! Hell of a job fellas!

The exposure right off the base belay was great and that potato chip flare was wildly fun. Then some fun(read: kind of awkward) OW above to the chains made for a great long pitch.

Pitch 2 had some so-so rock, but it is significantly easier so it was still lots of fun. The spin move in the vortex was super cool! Plus that ledge on the top of pitch 2 is amazing! We unroped and hung out for a long time, enjoying the view and watching the Helo's... more >>

Comments: Lots of good info above. We found having 2 #4's to be nice.

Remember to protect the follower on the 4th pitch after the first bolt. There's a good spot for a #1 C4 just after the crux. If you don't and the follower blows the crux, they will swing out into space and will likely have to jug up a ways.

Comments: This is my favorite wall in the Phoenix area to Top-rope solo.

The climbs are short- but the proximity to Phoenix, the short hike, the easy access to the top, and the many bolted anchors make it really easy to do all 18-20 climbs in this area in just an hour or two.

Comments: Has anyone taken the back road out to LDE recently and know the condition of the road?

We have a Subaru and thinking about checking the way out.

Comments: It looked like the North-west side anchors(sort of above Deep Freeze) were missing their hangers on 12/23/14. I'll make sure to bring some next time I'm up there.

The South East side still has the rap anchor(the chains are looking rusty, however) that will get you down with 1 rap with a 70m rope no problem.

Comments: Just back there this weekend and the road is in great shape!

We made it back in an Outback without any issues but definitely need the AWD.. There is one section on the switchbacks that's a so-so, but the rest of the road was no sweat.

To the closed road issue above: when you get to the Y in the road a ways back- the left route has a closed to public sign, but the correct road to LDC takes the road on the right.

Enjoy this area while you can!

Comments: Really fun route!

We saw the traversing seam chalked up and thought it looked cool, so we hopped on it. Balancy start up thin moves, to a really fun traverse, and some sweet arete moves.

For us shorter folks, it's a pretty committing reach the arete before clipping the bolt. But a bomber cam in the seam near the beginning of the traverse makes you feel nice and happy making that move(which was the crux for me).

Thanks for the add to the area!

Comments: Fun route and really mellow.

However, that bolt could use a little love if anyone goes out there and has the time. It's sticking out about an inch and slightly bent downwards currently.

Comments: Can you lower with a 70m from the anchors? I see some conflicting info on the route length in the description and some of the comments.

Thanks!

Comments: Definitely a classic climb with a great position on the Flatiron! Everything about the climb was super fun. All pitches have a bunch of bolts, but none are entirely bolted.

I felt like pitch 1 was the crux for me with some really wide stemming through 2 different sections, protected nicely(maybe just hard because it was the first pitch after the hike in).

As mentioned linking 2&3 should be done as you barely need to place gear on pitch 2.

Pitch 3 is a breeze and another awesome stemming... more >>

Comments: Does anyone know if there are 1 or 2 bolts at the belay on top of pitch 3 and what kind of shape they are in?

Comments: The starting area is identified by a small flat 3í x 2í boulder sitting alone at the base. The route goes up the chossy hand crack to a small roof. Pull the roof on the left hand side and enjoy the great stemming & jamming to the top.

Suggested rack is on with the 3x .75-1ís, but Iíd drop the 3ís(or maybe only bring one). The only place youíd use it is low and thereís lots of options. Donít forget to bring a few tips and finger sized cams for the section above the roof.

It doesnít look lik... more >>

Comments: I agree with Ryan, super fun climbing. Quite cruxy, separated with good rests to quell the pump. At the top it steepens and is a fantastic sequence of moves.

For the onsight Iíd say maybe 2x purple-yellow master cams, and singles from .3-1 C4. I even placed a bomber red ball nut for kicks below the flat jug. A green C3 a few feet above the .75 slot helped mentally and caught a few good lobs I took when gunning for the chains. The gear is pretty sequencey, so JJís advice above on what to... more >>

Comments: Overall a very fun climb. Lots of varied movement and good fun on every pitch. Pitch 2 has some really fantastic lie-backing. Also, it felt a lot more adventurous than anything over on Barkís Canyon Wall, but the rock quality was mostly solid when on route(P3 has a bit of so-so stuff). There is a bit of spice here and there, but if there wasnít any spice then Iím not sure it would qualify as a Supes route!

Comments: I haven't been to Iso in awhile, but in the past we've always taken a car and been fine. We usually park at a small open area on the right of the road, 200 yards or so shy of where the high clearance vehicles park. Unless the road conditions have dramatically changed, you'll have no issues.

Comments: This line, Pocket Full of Rainbows, and Bon Bons In Space all share the same anchor. Currently, it has one good bolt and one decent one, but both hangers are very rusty. Not sure I'd trust them for anything but rapping. That said, the left two lines are really cool and quite steep on huge pockets.

Comments: After I got out there, I realized I traversed a bit too low. There is a new bolt about 15' higher that you can get too by traversing straight over too it.

Comments: Pulling the roof was fun. Mostly face climbing after that. 1 bolt on top with a .5 sized crack next to it for the anchor.
