Trapped on Fandango
On Sunday, June 29th, we set out to climb one of the easier routes on Colorados first Flatiron. Halfway up the second pitch, a thunderstorm rolled in. With Lightning striking the cliff within twenty meters on all sides of us, we took shelter under a huge flake to the right of the route. Shortly after the storm passed, Rocky Mountain Rescue arrived to set up a fixed line, allowing us to rappel to safety.
