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 Sterling Hollow Block is great at biting down on ropes when tying friction knots using a Prusik, Klemheist, or auto block. Its Aramid fiber construction helps resist abrasion and heat. Pony up a few extra bucks to have one hanging from your harness, you’ll end up using it.
