Ice screws, QDs, and/or slings for the 4 bolts. A Park employee said that anchoring to the telephone pole and guard rail is kosher.

Be careful if trying this route when the large pillar is in, especially if it is not well supported on bottom. I pulled on to it on top rope only to have it give way and cause a ruckus. If it landed on someone, they almost certainly would have been killed. On lead, I don't recommend placing any screws until your feet are over the bulge.
