Great variety and quality of climbing. Start on flakes with good hands to an obvious undercling near the first and second bolt, then straight up to a palm slapping slab. Before getting to the roof, you can place a .75 cam under a flake to kill the runout. Mantel the roof at a bolt right of Mettle Detector. Take the crystal filled balancy moves up the steep face passing 2 more bolts to a set of rap anchors.
To find the Far Right Side of the Cereal Wall, hike past the Cereal Buttress following a trail inbetween two large boulders. Follow this trail to the 75 foot toproping boulder about 100 yards ahead. Head up the gully to the left of the boulder. This route is to the right of Mettle Detector and left of Angell Falls, heading over the roof band on the right side. Start at mossy flakes following bolts.
5 bolts and to rap anchors. Just draws will do but a .5- 1" is nice to break up the easy terrain runout
