The Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks extends for over 10 miles along the Front Range just west of Boulder, Colorado. The Flatirons are iconic for the area and easily recognized by the massive rock formations jetting out of the hillside, which are called The Flatirons. Often times, people climb the First Flatiron as a rite of passage in Colorado, it is a must-do, with 1,000 feet of moderate terrain and breathtaking views. Along with the First Flatiron is the Second and Third Flatirons or even The Maiden that offer whole new adventures for those of you that have already climbed the First. Routes on these formations are mostly low-angle, beginner climbing, but can offer a thrill for advanced climbers as well.
