Chip Phillips on the FA of Frosted Flakes.
|The majority of these boulders are located within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, which is regulated & patrolled by the US Forest Service. Climber MORE INFO >>>|
Frosted Flakes begins from a sds down in a small cave on the right side of the east face. Climb up and left making a reach to a gaston, then go again into sidepull edges in a right-arching seam. Follow the seam up and right to the top. Watch your back if you blow it at the top and pad up accordingly.
From the downvalley end of the Dali Boulder, e.g., No More Greener Grasses, head directly uphill into the talus for 75 yards, keeping an eye out for an enormous and flat, but not very tall boulder. Frosted Flakes ascends the right side of the essentially vertical downvalley-facing or east face of the block. Another problem, Touchdown Jesus is located about 20 feet to the left.
At least a couple Organic pads to even out the talus landing in the cave. A small pad on the sharp block behind the climber and/or a spotter would be wise.
