Climbed this yesterday and did not feel particularly great about the anchor situation either. I'm not going to criticize anyone's effort, and it clearly worked since my partner and I both made it back down safely, but I was happy to be off of it and onto the better P1 anchor.

The photo sited in the route description does not show the proper location of this route. The routes shown are The Serpent & Watermark. Golden Years is actually the next line of bolts to the left.
