Comments: I full on epic'd on this route. The anchors up top are hard to find and I wrote a novel of a trip report with all the stuff I learned about this route. Check it out Groover Trip Report

Comments: This is full value and is sustained 5.9 climbing. If you only want to climb the last pitch you can rap down from the bivy cave and traverse over on a ledge system. I haven't done it but two dudes climbed The Golden Rule that way. I have lots of pics on my trip report here - Construction Job

Comments: Follow the book and don't be tempted to go right on the second pitch. I tried and it was nasty. I wrote a trip report about it here. - BumbleBee Buttrees

Comments: This is a classic line. I think I've climbed it three times in the past year and plan on climbing it at least a couple times this year. I wrote a brief trip report after my first time here. - Maginot Line

Location: NC : Rumbling Bald : Cereal Buttress : Fruit Loops (5.7+)

Comments: The second pitch of Fruit Loops isn't really worth it. If you don't want to lead Granola you can sneak over from the anchors on top of Fruit Loops. It'd be a helluva pendulum though. I took a lot of pictures and posted them on my blog. - Rumbling Bald Cereal Buttress

Comments: A .75 camalot or a gold metolious cam is helpful between the last bolt and the anchors. I took some pretty neat pics from the anchors of a guy leading the route Link to pictures - Electra
