DescriptionThis is an easier hybrid route of two existing routes ending at the anchor rather than topping out. Kinda a nice variation if you don't want to do the 10a finish or have to do the walk off. We actually really enjoyed this and found it a great lead.
The book shows a blank slab start for Granola Crunch, but it's so close to the corner - it's pretty hard to resist the line of least resistance up the right side. Start up the giant corner (Frosted Flakes start) protects with a couple small nuts, then traverse left (crux)to join Granola Crunch. Follow the obvious discontinuous cracks then traverse left at the top directly to the bolted anchor. Slabby transition traverse is spicy, but short and sweet.
