Description 

Climb the newly excavated dihedral to the roof. Pull left around the roof and follow the crack to a tree up high. There are anchors for Frankenberry 20 feet to the left of the tree to descend.

Location 

Right side of Cereal Buttress, 30 feet right and uphill of Frankenberry.

Protection 

Up to a 4 Camalot is nice. Smaller stuff for roof.

I kinda thought this felt a little more like .11a but getting rid of the poison ivy sustained on this route was more like 5.13c/d! Belay from big cams at the end of the roof to avoid mega rope jammage. P.I. is pretty much gone (from me) and the route.
