Comments: There are two bolted anchors at the top of the formation. You can use a single rope to rap right to the base of Center Route or Wunsch's Dihedral.

Comments: Gear: nothing bigger than purple BD #0.5s at the top. In the business, it's grey, yellow, and green Aliens. I would recommend two of each so you are not wanting.
