What are some good long (grade 3) easy (4th and easy 5th) climbs around Boulder that I can do with my wife while we're in town? We'll be there the first week of January. I know about the Flatirons, but what about something more remote. Points are given for aesthetics too.

Long easy remote stuff is most likely going to be snow covered the first week of January.

A few options for Eldo once the snow melts off:

Check the conditions on the E Slabs descent first.

You'll need to do the first pitch of mountainproject.com/v/rewritte... or mountainproject.com/v/west-chi... to access these:

Seal Rock east face is flatiron type climb, and is a bit more of a hike than to the 3rd (ie, slightly remote), I think... Easy and fun. 5 or 6p. Good free hanging rap off the back, too.

Location-wise, it's not remote (you're basically right above Boulder), but the hike keeps most people away. I've climbed it a few times during peak season and never seen anybody else.

When I climbed Seal Rock, there were many parties on it and the rap caused an hour+ gumbie clusterf*ck traffic jam. It is a really good flatirons route, but it still sees tons of traffic.
