Start is same as Granola. From atop the large block, pull the small roof directly into the thin tips layback crack. Small brass pieces and/or Ball Nuts needed. Belay under roof at Granola's rings. Traverse right a few moves and pull large roof using obvious crack. Belay shared with Frosted Flake. Can be done as one pitch.

Very nice top rope climb. I can't imagine how any gear would hold in that delicate flake. P-2 is cool too. Jan 4, 2008

So how many people have even led this? If NBrown doesn't want it...... Apr 23, 2017

Not many--the FA and the climber in the "Hmm" photo on this page may be it.

But it is great fun on a top rope after leading Granola. But even with climbing it clean on TR, I wouldn't want to lead it. Jul 7, 2017

This is an amazing fingertip crack. The move to gain the crack and committing moves up the crack will make you think. Love it. Sep 23, 2018
