Second Flatiron-Free for All 5.6

Pullman CarOops, we forgot the camera today. But, no worries. I'm sure you recall our climb of the Second Flatiron from October. Today we started at the same spot as last time and followed the same route for a pitch and a half. Then, instead of heading to the north (right) we went to the south, ended up underneath the Pullman Car and then went up between the Car and the South Block. Unfortunately, we were not able to do the last pitch which went up the east side of the Pullman Car because it started thundering and then proceeded to rain. We were very fortunate that we were at a spot where we could scramble up the gully, climb a couple of moves and then walk off onto the trail. Overall, we did 7 seven pitches in 5 1/2 hours--not bad!
