Approach


From one of the two parking lots follow obvious jeep road/trail (3/4ths of a mile). Then follow along boulderfield contouring right to reach the Cereal Buttress and Cereal Wall.


Route Description


Look for the obvious and beautiful left facing corner on the Cereal Buttress, right of Fruit Loops and Granola.
Pitch 1 - Cruise up the bottom of this left facing corner to a roof. Work left to a stance, then eventually into a strenuous lieback, plug in solid gear and blast off until you reach better holds. Finish at double bolt anchor. 80 feet.



Essential Gear


Bring additional 3" and 3.5" pieces for this tasty treat.
