Description

Start at the top flake of frosted flakes, traverse under the overhang. It is kind of low, there is great potential to dab, nevertheless, it has really fun movement.

Protection

Pad for the top out.

I started this from the bottom of the boulder. Feels way more fun this way. Mar 10, 2012

Feels like a much more classic route if done from the start of frosted flakes. Awesome problem. Jul 27, 2010
Sorry for the lack of a response. You did it the same way I have. I would take the V4, Merc and I did this in the middle of a summer, and those top slopers felt a little greasy, very fun climb. Did you try the other climb? Nov 10, 2009

Well, in lieu of an answer, I started this route at the base of Frosted Flakes, climbed through the overhang using reasonable holds and marginal feet, and rolled around the other side for the top out. Once I got to the top, I traversed directly under the roof, which is my interpretation of the climb. I definitely thought it was worth the effort. The rock is good and the beta at the top was fun to work out. Felt more like V4 to me. Check this one out! Nov 6, 2009

Not sure from the description if I did this one or not. Do you traverse under the arch and top out directly on the other side? Or are you supposed to climb to the far left (when looking from the ground). Sep 18, 2009
