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. Your feet don't help much, the crux comes at the first move off of two incut crimps to a left sloper, then do a big throw out right to a small horn along the rail while your feet cut. It eases up as you move right along the rail towards the finishing jugs, then do an easy but mental mantle high above the rocky base.
The FA was mostly campused barefoot, since the shoes were left at home. Either way, shoes would only help slightly, the feet are small enough that they don't make a huge difference. This climb was named after the first attempt on the line when the spotter, unfamiliar with bouldering, gave a slightly more than helpful spot.
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
It has a rocky landing, a pad is recommended.
