Description 

This is a thin slab, and the rock is definitely somewhat friable. The crux seems like it is near the bottom on a smooth slab. I am glad I did it as a top rope, because I did fall. The first ascensionist was bold leading free up to the bolt. There is no gear at all. At the bolt, I went to the right like Crimes Against Rock. This was how the first ascent was done. Going up from the bolt looked like it would be very difficult. This was originally called Frosted Flakes.

Location 

This route is between Pork Meadows and Chris and Pete's Wake Up Call. The start is a thin slab and it is directly below the coldshut anchor at the top. You rappel or lower to get down.

Protection 

This is a top rope. There is one bolt, but it is for a directional. There is a double bolt anchor at the top.
