They should be placed EYE DOWN. Typically, the best placements are drilled down at a 10-15 degree angle and pounded til the eye contacts or is imbedded in the rock.

Comments: Only a single mid pitch bolt on first pitch adjacent to very loose block. The anchor at top of first pitch is two bomb proof hexes and one ring angle in poor rock. Rappel route is sunlight corner showing full tower in gordon's photo, there is one intermediate station which is easily bypassed with two ropes. The first pitch starts 30' right of this rap line.
