Word of caution: one of the anchor bolts is missing, only one chain remains functional. Someone has draped a small wired nut and biner over the second anchor's rusty stud (presumably for rapping off). I left these in place in case anyone else wants the dubious security of this back-up anchor after a lead ascent.

Comments: Yeah, Derek and Caleb, congrats on getting up this one! Mother Psycho is a tough lead! About 1992 I watched two "elite level" french climbers thrash themselves into exhaustion before they finally got it.
