Start in crack, then work up and left to great, thin, crimpy climbing. Crux is clipping second bolt. Continue working up and right past two more bolts.
Route is located on the right edge of the Cereal (Surreal) Buttress, right next to Frosted Flake.
5 bolts, maybe some gear down low in the crack. Anchors at the top
Just after the crux, starting the thin more slabby...

Best to use double ropes and use one to get a high piece in Frosted Flake. Otherwise, a fall near the bolt often results in broken ankle.

Some of the cleanest granite edging in NC. Beautiful.

Definitely agree about the doubles. I just tied into both ends of my rope then untied from one end at the anchor. Also blowing the upper mantle would not be a good idea. Awesome pitch!

4 bolts, not five. You can place a piece under the roof right in line with the first bolt- there's no need for double ropes, just sling it. The climbing is great, though you may be too gripped on the runouts to enjoy it.

Sycamore, you're too strong to understand the need for the double rope technique. It's not to prevent drag. The gear is placed higher than the first bolt and waaaaay out left. It's there to keep you off the slab if you blow it trying to clip the 2nd bolt.
