There IS a good anchor on the second pitch, on a big ledge above some dirty squeeze chimney climbing with sketchy chockstones.
The p1 chimney is pretty fun and can be climbed utilizing a hand crack (that forms the second pitch). The wide-hands crack on p2 is really great climbing.
However the chimneys and flares above that are pretty nasty, hard, unaesthetic climbing. Maybe my experience was colored by not being sure whether there was an anchor above, but I definitely wish there were bolts at the end of the hand crack.

|Just climbed this and went to the rim. The last pitch is about 60' long and mostly hands with a wide piece or two. There is no anchor on the top but we were able to run the rope around a large boulder directly above the 2nd pitch anchor. Just make sure that whoever raps first checks to see if the rope will pull before the second person raps down.|
