I doubt many people even climb it but for what it's worth I ripped a pretty decent sized hold off of Doublethink the other day. About the size of a baseball came off.

As a hand it is a bolt below the crux but it was most helpful as a foothold which is when it broke. Unfortunately, it was an onsight attempt so I have no idea if it effects the rating or not. It definitely felt like it would have been helpful to get through the crux... Sorry! :P Nov 19, 2014
