Description 

Frosted Flake is located directly left of Caramel Corner. It is easily identified by the large anvil-like ledge about 20 feet off the deck. Climb up the face and do a tricky mantle onto the top of the ledge. Keep going up the pebbles until you get to a small cave. This is the crux. Check out the small tunnel created by the water.


Protection 

Good toprope anchors at top. Several bolts, trees, etc.

This is a route that is great for a solid 5.7 climber to push themselves on. There are plenty of ways to make this easier - but with a good eye for the route and some good planning, this could make for a great "graduation" to the next level!

Frosted Flakes is a 5.10+ climb (more like 5.11) straight up from the right angling ledge. I think the description may be wrong.

I agree with Garrick, no way this is a 5.9 climb, noticeably harder.
