This anchors Ed is referring to are new. When I did the route a few years ago I placed a #3 as a directional and then traversed right to the anchors.

There is some sketchy rock on this route, but the crack itself is solid. Great gear and bomber hand jams. Such a fun warm up. Apr 19, 2014

There is no traverse to anchors. The anchors ( thin and sketchy glue-ins ) are directly above and a little to the right at the top of the crack. I backed them up with a #3 camalot when I was belaying but still only used them for the rappel. Fun jam crack. Apr 3, 2014
