This climb is magic and makes Cinnamon Slab even more worth doing.
To start, climb Cinnamon Slab and and use the bolted anchors just to the right of the roof above your head. Pull up over the mini-roof staring you straight in the face and follow the bolt line that trends left towards the arete. The position alone makes this climb memorable as you look down at the base of the Dihedrals and the Crooked River, but the climbing itself is also a lot of fun. Knobs and edges will take you to the top of the formation when you have a choice of continuing straight up the bolt line or moving a bit to the right to top out. Either way you do it you will be standing atop of the formation on a massive ledge with great views at a bolted anchor.
To descend, walk climbers right to a set of anchors and rappel back down to the ledge at the top of Cinnamon Slab before making one more rappel to the base.

Given Black Diamond’s reputation for strong and durable hard goods, we decided to give their 9.9mm rope a try as our go to gym rope. The rope is priced right and works great out of the box but early signs of wear in the gym make it hard to give it the nod as a preferred gym rope.
