There are no anchor bolts directly above this route. I used the anchors on the route to the left.

The anchors are there, keep climbing up & slightly rightward on the chickenheads and you will find them. A 60m rope gets you down just barely.

I think this route is 5.10, even if you stand on the first bolt, which I and my partner did.

Just to update the anchor situation, a new shared anchor was added for this route and River Dance. A 60m rope is plenty.

Offset cams would be very useful on this route.
