|This route is much better than I expected and has consistently interesting climbing, especially on the 1st, 3rd, and 4th pitches. Kyle C and I did this route on Dec 28 in about 68 deg and shade and were very comfortable. We took a single set and a 70m rope, easily linking pitches 2 and 3 to make this a three pitch climb with a short scramble at the top. Excellent climbing on good rock with good protection in an interesting location makes for a classic route.|

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 pitch with bolts nicely spaced through the white band of soft rock. The roof and finger crack at the end are great.
Pitch 4 is the best pitch I have done in the Supes to date! That was some seriously fun movement over a long pitch of great gear and bolts.
Rack we had was: 1x Purple-Yellow Mastercams, .4-3 C4s, nuts; with 8 qds and 8 alpine draws. I bring exactly the same next time, except maybe leave the #3 at home.
FoD was quite civilized compared to some other Supes classics, especially compared to its neighbor Sidewinder . Lots of bolts on the pitches, bolted belays, great rock, great gear, etc. The hike up to the Flatiron is brutal, but totally worth it for this climb!
