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.

The Petzl Sama is a good all-around harness for sport, trad, and multi-pitch climbs. It offers up low profile gear loops, good padding, and non-adjustable yet comfortable leg loops while still not being overly bulky or heavy. Great for beginners or experienced climbers.
