Anyone know if there's still anchors on Square Rock in the Flatirons?

I can only find posts that are at least a couple years old but it sounds like the anchors keep being removed. I'm looking to practice toperope soloing tomorrow and figured square rock would be a good place. However, I'd really rather not lug my gear up there only to find nothing but chopped bolts. So if anyone knows the status on the anchors as of late that'd be great!

There's a few spots in bocan to practice tr solo and only lug your gear 50ft with 99â„… chance of having anchors.

Update: There are three sets of good looking anchors on top of Square Rock and a one bolt anchor on its NE corner.

jcm537, I don't actually have a car so right now I'm stuck going to the rocks I can ride my bike to. Otherwise I'd be regularly be in the canyon!

Drew: If you want to climb in the Canyon without a car, you might look into the RTD Nederland/Boulder bus:

There is also some easy stuff to practice on in Gregory Canyon, third pinnacle, that doesn't get a ton of traffic.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
