Friday, 9/28/2018, Second Flatiron, Freeway

The Freeway route on the Second Flatiron is an excellent beginner climbing route. Experienced scramblers often climb the route unroped. It is about 7 pitches and is rated class 4 with a few low class 5 moves with some exposure.You can register for this climb online. Please indicate on your registration whether you intend to climb roped or as an unroped scramble. The number of roped climbers that can be accommodated is limited. If you are an experienced scrambler you need to convince the trip leader that you can safely climb the route without the security of a rope.For a roped climb bring helmet, climbing harness, a couple of locking carabiners and slings or personal anchor system, a belay/rappel device, rock shoes if you have them. Approach shoes with sticky rubber soles work well for this climb. Bring a day pack, snacks, and water. You should have some rock climbing training such as a CMC basic mountaineering course. Leader(s) will bring ropes and rock pro for the climb.REGISTER WITH LEADER.
