This was my hiking partner's first ascend to Flatiron and as usual, it turned out to be an excellent hike!
Unfortunately, we came across graffiti on the way up Siphon Draw. It may have been there before, but I don't remember seeing it last month. It's pathetic to think that someone actually used a stencil to spray paint a rock.
Despite not bringing our rock climbing shoes, we tried some bouldering in hiking boots...it didn't quite feel the same.
Another interesting thing we spotted was a white cross on the south side of Siphon Draw in between the canyons near the top of the cliff. Did someone fall there? Never seen it before. Wasn't able to zoom in far enough to photograph it.
As we hiked down, it was getting near sunset and were able to take some cook pictures with the sun contrasting the rocks. Also, by the time we hit the road, I found this cool Lost Dutchman sign which screamed PHOTOGRAPH with the sun behind it.
