1st trip
We got started from the Crosscut trailhead as soon as it was light enough to not need headlamps. Nice temps, with a pleasant breeze. Headed up Siphon Draw, overtaking a group of foreign tourists at the first saddle. From there, we were followed the rest of the way up by a guy who had never hiked to the Flatiron before. Above the wall, we said our goodbyes to him, wished him luck on his way back down, then headed over to 5024. We almost immediately ran into Sam, then continued to 5024. After that, it was a nice walk along the Ridgeline. A great breeze countered the warm sunlight, so it felt perfect. We stopped for lunch then made our way over towards 5057. For some reason, I had absolutely no recollection of the chute at the north end of 5057. We paused for a moment, looked around, then went up the chute. With a good boost, I was over the first rock, but I really have no idea how I made it up that last time. Quick break on 5057, then over to West Boulder Saddle. From there, we went to Robbers Roost, then made our way north to Fremont Saddle, then down Cave Trail. Quick hike down Cardiac Hill to Peralta trailhead, then a bit of a road walk to the Lost Goldmine trailhead, where we had parked the second vehicle--choosing that spot in case we had decided to bail out at West Boulder Saddle, the car was pretty much in the middle no matter which way we came down. We finished up just before headlamps would have been necessary. Great day for this hike. Only say a few people at the beginning and end, almost no wildlife either.
