The Cereal Buttress is possibly the most popular spot at Rumbling Bald. It has a plentiful variety of routes, some multi-pitch; most are crack climbs, from moderate on up.
From the parking lot, follow the rutted old jeep road up right about three-fourths of a mile to where it peters into a trail. Follow the trail past a boulderfield; at an obvious split, go left for the left end of Cereal Buttress or the Comatose Area; go right for the main Cereal Buttress and Cereal Wall.
