Cams protect well. There are fixed bolted anchors with rap rings at the top of the sport route to the left of this route.

Not exactly a 5 star climb, but it does boast a fun squeeze. Make sure you have a few cams around 1" for the anchor, or traverse across a loose ledge, minding the precarious boulders and rocks, to the bolt anchor for "Bring your Dancing Shoes".

There is also a good sized spruce tree you can tie off to and belay a second from.
