follow the green line! the way I do it I naturally...


SDS at the base of Low Ball and traverse through fun dynamic moves left to the base of cereal bowl, proceed up cereal bowl to the lip, then traverse all the way right to the tree working with difficult lip, then down climb a sort 2 moves to the starting position and run the loop again!


First boulder you see when you walk past the playground.

This is like Cereal Bowl and the Westby Traverse put back to back. A quintessential Westby boulder problem, only it's missing all the moss and it requires stamina;) if you are seriously training, circuit this loop or move west.

work with what you got!

most people I've shown this too like just doing the first half and topping out on cereal bowl. which is a really fun extension of cereal bowls. competing the loop is a lot more frustrating.
