As seen from Crystal Peak
Lookin' down on rog mid way up the second pitch. Rog is belaying from the ledge about a couple hundred off the deck. The gear is good, if the rock is good, but the rock is questionable in places.

My 5 piece anchor amungst the rubble that is the top of the spire. It was difficult to find a good anchor due to the crappy rock, but even more significant was the danger of the rope running over the loose rock on the ground and knocking chunks over the edge onto the climber below. This anchor worked out very well though, it is directly at the top of the pitch, about 20 feet back.

Two shiny you-know-whats would be nice right there...if you could find anything solid to, um, "place" them in....

Yeah, people have only been climbing these things for about 50 years on hexes and stoppers. If you can get yourself up there, you'll probably work it out.
