Flatirons Climbing Council (FCC) Secures Expansion of Fixed Anchors in Boulder FlatironsThe FCC recently secured substantial expansion of the formations open for fixed anchors in the Boulder Flatirons. The FCC has worked for many years to have a complete ban on new bolts (issued by the city in 1990) gradually lifted. Starting in 2009, Boulder has added several new formations that are now eligible for bolting applications: the Maiden, the Matron, Dinosaur Rock, Overhang Rock, Bear Creek Spire, and more of the Third Flatiron. This expansion offers some excellent opportunities for new routes. Persons interested in bolting applications should visit www.flatironsclimbing.org for more information.
