The stately Flatirons rise majestically above Boulder, Colorado, a city considered by many to be the center of rock climbing in North America. For decades these cliffs have beckoned climbers to find adventure on routes ranging from slabby, casual Sunday cruises to overhanging, cutting-edge desperates. The rock quality is outstanding, the setting is unsurpassed, and the power of the Flatirons remains forever in the hearts and minds of anybody who's ever called Boulder home. Rock Climbing the Flatirons is the second book in a series of three that replace Richard Rossiter's out of print Boulder Climbs South and Boulder Climbs North. Rossiter's legendary attention to detail translates into clearly drawn topos, easy-to-use maps, and thorough route descriptions that will guide climbers to many years of challenge and fulfillment in the most revered of climbing areas, the Flatirons.
