Jessica approaching the Cinnamon Slab / Ginger Sna...

Knobby face that serves as an alternative to Cinnamon Slab. Be careful with the rocky scramble and climb to the first bolt.


Just to the right of Cinnamon Slab. You can make this a two pitch climb by continuing on with Cinnamon Toast, Cry Babies, the 2nd pitch of Cinnamon Slab, or Rodney's Chocolate Frosted Love Donut.


Bolted; anchors at top.

This is harder than a 5.8 if you follow the bolt line strait up the middle of the slab @ the start w/o deviating to the right or left.

Awesome lead for the 5'3" and under. Great puzzle to figure out. I'm new to leading and loved this challenge.
Clipping first and second bolt I had to traverse across from the right flake on to the face. The second bolt was even further left. My arm span was just to short to do any other way safely for my skill level.
Don't stay to long in your head. :). Also helpful if guides wouldn't talk about fears of falling on the route next to you.
