Description

All bolts were placed on lead by Rod while a crapy belay was provided provided by Mr. Kelly. Gonthier provided verbal commentary and promised not to call the route what he did. Both Mr. Gonthier and Mr. Kelly have received their final belays and will forever be missed.

At the Ginger snap/ Cinnamon Slab belay, head straight up instead of climbing slightly left up the crack. The grade given in the guidebook is 5.9 . This route is bolted.

Descend via the Karate Wall rap, with 2 60m ropes, or 1 70m. Oct 15, 2008

I pulled a big chunk off at about the 4th bolt. Be careful.
Other than that, this route is super fun. I would say 5.7 is consistent with the rest of Smith Oct 25, 2008
Rodney's Chocolate Frosted Love Donut. FA: Rod Spencer, Don Gonthier, Scott (Stick) Kelly, sometime around August '96. All bolts placed on lead by RS w/ alternating crappy belays provided by DG and SK. Loose flake was left due to heavy climbing traffic below refusing to move out of the way, even after repeated cries of "ROCK, ROCK, ROCK!!!" Aug 29, 2011

The guide I have lists this one at 5.8. The first move is probably 5.9, followed by much easier climbing to the top. The knobby holds are unstable and prone to snap, but there are plenty of holds to choose from. Jul 13, 2013

You don't need two ropes to get down. One 60m and two raps. May 13, 2015
