There is nothing to lower off of at the anchor bolts, but it is easy to walk off to climber's right of the route.

The crux seems to be at the start. The only protection here seems to be in a crack to the right of the main crack where a small cam will fit. Most of the crack seemed easier than 5.6 but was still fun.

I added quicklinks to the anchor yesterday, but it really needs chains. Lots of rope drag when pulling it after a rappel/lower.
