This is not really a new anchor, but a more useful anchor above a narrow ledge, 40 feet above the final 2-ring anchor on Wings of Desire. This anchor is useful if one wishes to finish Kama Sutra, Tree of Life or Wings of Desire at the top of the wall.

To rappel from this anchor with a single 200-foot rope, it is (I think) necessary to rap to the anchors at the tops of Wings of Desire or Kama Sutra, then down again to the 2-ring anchor atop the first pitch of Kama Sutra. Then one more time (about 70 feet) to Ledge Two.

NOTE: It is not possible (with a 200-foot rope) to rappel all the way to the first 2-ring anchor on Kama Sutra and make Ledge Two in just 2 raps. It takes 3 raps to reach Ledge 2 from this anchor at the top of the wall.
