Do this in one pitch....
Climb Ginger snap to the shared anchor with Cinnamon Slab and keep going up. Veer left following a line of bolts up the arete to the top of the formation. Use longs slings on the last bolt of G. Snap, the anchor and the next couple bolts to avoid drag.
Super fun.
Rap Cinnamon Slab

Bryson, could you be talking about Cinnamon Toast 5.7. I believe its listed in the Watts guide but has recently had a few more bolts added.

It's in the red adendem as Unknown and I think it goes left of Cinn. Toast but I'm not real familiar with that route.

I believe the upper section (5.9) is called Cry Babies, probably for the last couple of exposed moves out on the arete to finish - Fun route!

I loved this route. It's got fun and exposed moves but with enough holds to keep it on the fun side of the fun/hardwork dividing line.

If you head up/right of the last bolt, the moves are easier. I went left the first time and it was guh-narl-ee.

Great view awaits on top.

You can rap the Cross Fire chain anchor with a 70 meter rope to descend to the base on Cinnamon Slab.
