Rap rings above Hurts?

I noticed on a list of new or improved rap stations in the Nati mountain shop that there were rings above Hurts. I climbed it earlier this week and couldn't see any rings or chains. Have they been chopped? If not, where are they?

The ring bolts were there a couple of weeks ago. At the end of the steep climbing on Hurts, you move several metres R and then up to them. You might miss them if you climb straight up instead. They're probably just to the R of the start of Hurts. To access them from above, I use a short static. Confident types could scramble down.

I climbed pretty much straight up, so I must have missed them. Still, it's a "lovely" walk down.

Most of our recent trips to Araps have included a visit to Hurts Wall (a friend had been sniffing at Kachoong). I like it: Hurts is a blast, Ground Cummin is an easy version of Hurts, Cyclic is an interesting climb with some exciting moments, and In Phase is steep, technical, and no soft touch at 23 in the opinion of several of us.

And watching the faces of the passing parade to Kachoong is always interesting...

Hurts was loads of fun, pumpy as all hell though. We've been sniffing round Kachoong too, I've promised to do it by the end of the year. 3 months left and counting...

As stated by prb, the lower-off is more in line with the finish of 'In Phase' - which is an excellent 23, but not surprisingly gets 24 in Louise's guide. For an onsight it must be worth that. Stays dry in light rain as well and has bomber gear. The start is a bit spicy though.
