On the Woofers picture you will see a bolt placement. Still there. There is only one bolted chain at the anchor. We set a .75 cam in a crack below it as a backup. Nervous about the one bolt anchor, but it appeared to be in good condition, so rolled with it + a cam back up below. After TR Woofers lead up to single chain anchor for more TR fun.

Had wait for more popular routes, nobody here. Way right at trail split for the approach. Made the mistake of going too far before turning right. Apr 5, 2016

If you are referring to the anchor which is down on the face, yes there is only one bolt. It's in a poor location for setting up a toprope, but does make a nice directional. Or are you referring to the anchor on top of the pillar? Mar 15, 2012

Caution: As of 03/14/12, there was only one anchor. There is a hole where the second bolt for the anchor(s) used to be. Mar 15, 2012

On 2/9/2011, the LVCLC with support from the ASCA replaced one of the bolts on top of the tower with a 1/2x3.5". I would still recommend bringing a lot of extension material for this one. Feb 9, 2011

Bring lots of tat to TR this one. There are 2 bolts on top of the tower, which can be used to access the former 2-bolt anchor on the face. I pulled one of those out by hand at 2009 RRR. A decent TR, if you have the KSE to set it up. Aug 31, 2010
