Description

Thin start, lots of classic Smith nubbins. Crux around 3rd bolt, turns very low-angle after 4th bolt.

Please rig a proper TR anchor and only use the rings to rappel.

Location

faces East, around the corner of the block from Rope-de-dope Crack. Also just left of Shamu (5.9)

Protection

5 bolts to 2-bolt anchor w/ rings

Now rated 5.7 in the 2010 edition of Watts' Smith Rock book. Jun 13, 2010
The rings are getting thin, people are likely top roping directly through the rings. While they are still (probably) ok for rappelling they wont be for much longer. Apr 21, 2014

Start was committing then cruiser after bolt #2. Jun 19, 2014
As of 10/2/16, the chain links are about as low as they can go before exploding. Those poor things have been top roped through more times than anything I've ever seen. Oct 3, 2016
