Aenea is a fun route, with 5 bolts to a 2-ring Fixe anchor. The 3rd bolt is a long reach to clip. The anchor is situated ~ 10 feet above the small left-facing corner/roof, not as indicated on the photo of Hyperion Slab, on the Texas Canyon main page.

Tried to toprope this one shortly after rain. The entire hyperion slab and just about all of texas canyon gets way loose when wet... I was able to do the route to the right however.
