Historical note - Some debate ensued upon this route's completion due to issues of style. Those can be viewed here: mountainproject.com/v/fair-wea...
This route is a significant variation to the established standard for the Cereal Wall in that it was bolted on rappel rather than on lead.

Fun route... looking at Kelley topos and climbing the neighboring conceivable routes, I am convinced that this line either is the first pitch of Lucky Charms (a 5.8R/X pitch from the 80's) or climbs just left of Lucky Charms. The Kelley topo shows Lucky Charms leaving from a the tree island, aiming to the right of a moss pad under the head wall. This route does just that, but slightly left of the moss. Lucky Charms tops out the head wall at hard X rated terrain.
Intriguing moderate climbing either way.

|Having just climb the route, it is similar to other routes in that area with a couple more bolts than the others. Probably would've went easily ground up but I digress. FWIW - the washers on the first three bolts are rusty. The bolts and hangers look fine.|
