You can place a nut and a cam (upward facing crack, though, for the cam) down left of your feet between bolts 1 and 2 - without you're looking at groundfall getting to the second bolt (poorly bolted as is the first on Directissima, IMO - not the runout, but bad clipping stances). Exciting lead. Corner (takes 0.3-1 BDs) was a welcome cruise after the slab.

Two bolt belay/rappel anchor where the upper corner meets the headwall (as indicated in the Slater guidebook) - one bolt with two rings, the other a single small quicklink.
