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.

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

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!!!"

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.
