Flatiron Classics: Easy Rock Climbs Above Boulder - 2nd Edition
By Gerry Roach

 

The legendary guidebook to Boulder’s Flatiron climbing, completely updated in a new edition.

 

• The first and best guidebook to the Flatirons.

 

• Most routes are rated 5.6 or easier.

 

• Completely updated to include seasonal closures.



Soaring up from the Boulder foothills, the Flatirons are famous for moderate climbing; that are not only a great training ground for more difficult climbs, but more importantly, Flatiron routes are simply fun.

Join Gerry Roach in exploring this vast array of sandstone slabs that host a colorful universe of clefts, corners, cracks, chimneys, caves. overhangs, faces, grottos, alcoves, notches, ridges, and summits. There are 238 routes on 116 rocks plus 96 variations and 14 Extra Credit climbs. And the majority of these routes are rated at 5.6 or easier.

Originally published 20 years ago as a 4X6 inch book and long out of print, Flatiron Classics has been completely updated to include seasonal conservation closures and some reevaluations of route difficulty.

GERRY ROACH was the second person to climb the highest peak on each of the seven continents. He has climbed actively around the world for six decades and had been on 35 major expeditions. In 2000 he became the first person to climb North America's ten highest peaks. He lives in Boulder.
