3rd Flatiron Climb

Did the 3rd Flatiron in Boulder today.

After a long hiatus I got to finally get back into climbing with an easy 5.2 to 5.4.

It was the classic standard route and I got to lead all 6 pitches. It had been awhile since I led a pitch but this was the perfect reintroduction to climbing at an appropriate experienced yet rusty level.
Although I did feel a little intimidated on the first two pitches due to the longevity of the rock climbing hiatus I started to feel my chops come back to me after the 3 to 5th pitches.

I'd definitely do this climb again; although not as much as the guy who has a plaque dedicated to him at the top where it said he climbing it 101 times.
