BETA PHOTO: Rock Bight boulder at low tide. Slapping da Jug is...
This has hard, powerful moves on decent rock which is slightly slick at the bottom, but the hand holds are solid. Bump the feet on pretty small, sometimes wet edges, the crux comes at the first move off of two incut crimps to a left sloper, then big move out right to a small horn along the rail. Eases up as you move right along the rail towards the finishing jugs, then an easy mantle to top out.
Climb was named after the spotter accidentally gave an extra helpful spot on the first attempt.
Take the main trail down to Great Rock Bight on the northwest side of Martha's Vineyard. Once at the beach, walk left towards the point, around the corner, to the large, stand-alone boulder on the beach. The problem is on the right, east-facing side. Keep an eye on the tides, low tide is recommended.
The downclimb is on the west side of boulder, down Slapping da Bass
Rocky landing, pad recommended but not necessary if comfortable at the grade.
