Its been a few years since I've been in the Canyon, but through the 2000s there were never chains at the top (2 old unpatched bolt holes though). Plenty of options to set a natural anchor to bring your second up or top rope, and the walk-off only takes a few minutes. Given that this is not a sport climb it seems like there is little reason to have bolt anchors. Jan 20, 2016
