I found a gear anchor at the belay ledge at the start of the one of the left-side routes..cordelette + biners + three pieces of pro..Couldn't figure out why anyone would leave it there in a walk-off situation..From the fading on the slings looks to have been there a few months at least..Anyway, if you want it back just e-mail me or comment through here and identify the pro

Stress that MP 13 (or about 50 yds below the actual marker)..Nice view of the Goosehead, Knights Wall, Cowpunks, Eagle Rock etc from this new parking lot..
