FA should be: Paul Glover, Matt Samet. I just seconded and helped whang in bolts, etc.
The second pitch is the funnest jug haul in the Flatirons, in a spectacular position, and the first pitch has just a few sandy footholds, but otherwise cool moves on unique features. You can rap back to your packs from the middle anchors for sure, and if you have a 70m, can also do so from the top anchors, atop pitch two. Kudos to Paul on his eye for this line!
Also, many thanks to OSMP, the Flatirons Climbing Council, and the Access Fund for keeping new-routing alive and well in the Flatirons.

|The first pitch is crap! Breaking stuff off left and right. That being said, it's worth it to get to the second pitch! Great, steep climbing on jugs...still pumpy, though!|

Cleaned up the first pitch today. Ripped two holds off, both resulting in falls.
2nd pitch is sweet though!

|Dropped a line from the top anchor yesterday. Pitch 2 was awesome. The line from the big ramp directly below the intermediate anchor goes at 5.10 with a few nice moves on very crumbly rock. Would be a nice line if a solid bolt was placed there, but I'm not sure if a bolt in that stuff would hold a fall.|
