On a TR of Doug Reed Solo, Rumbling Bald, NC.


Climb the textured face via crimps, smears and the occasional good hold. It is best to top-rope this after leading Frosted Flake, since there is no gear to lead it.


Just to the left of Frosted Flake.


Top Rope from the anchors on Frosted Flake.

I know you didnt just open up that can of worms Tyler;) Its the Carolina's, so no bolts added unless FA consents and generally community wants it too...honestly, there isnt a demand for this route, and as it says, its really just best to TR it after leading Frosted Flake. There is too much of a cluster f@#k around the Cereal Area as is too...turning this sport would just add to the overuse of the area and create bigger traffic jams.
