Flatirons. In the Flatirons above Boulder, Chester Dreiman and I made the first ascent of a tremendous overhang on the west face of Like Heaven Rock, which we named For Your Arms Only. We two also completed a new direct finish to Jeff Lowe’s route, Sunday Comics, on the west face of the Matron (5.9). Previously unprotected, with groundfall potential, bolts were placed by two subsequent ascents, making the climb an enjoyable and much safer venture.
