Took my son Justin (Age 12) out for his first Flatiron attempt. Wasn't really sure how this day would go, but he definitely had the right frame of mind to do this.

I have to say, he did quite well. Most stops on the way up were just so he could take in the views behind him. He really enjoyed looking for landmarks in the cities below.

The trail was packed. Much more than I am accustomed to. Our 10am start time certainly didn't help. But, it was a beautiful day, all day. Plenty of hikers still going up as we made our way down.

It took under 2-1/2 hours to get to the top. We relaxed on the edge of Flatiron for about 15 minutes then I showed him the crash site. We started back down the mountain and made it back to the car in just over 5 hours total.

Best part. No complaints. He loved the hike and he is looking forward to doing it again.
