Caleb, the anchors can be acessed with out leading it first. The actual anchors (chains) for the route can be rapped to from a set of bolts located near the top, that can be reached via an easy scramble. You have probably already figured this out or gave up since your post was three years ago but i figured id put my two cents in since i just found out last weekend.

Just got back on this route the other day after not being on it for about a year and a half, and it felt 12a. Just my opinion though. I think the moves following the schist section are 12a.
Definitely an amazing route, and a must do! Good work Brent!
