To clarify the location (since it is well worth the hike), take a faint path to the right from the main Mountaineers Dome trail when you reach the first plateau above the road (well before the dome and much lower than it looks in the guide). Follow this, and some exposed pipe in places, past several areas of unconsolidated rock until you are directly below the route. The trail then turns and heads up the hill to the base of the climb.

Scrabble around right of the route for the walk off, or to access the Contractor Rock area.

There are no anchors at the top. Only a couple hangers to the far right.

Fun route, I placed a number 3 before pulling up over the small bulge 'crux' move at the top. I was pleasantly surprised that there are two shiny new bolts at the top of this route. Ampfrogs location description is accurate and was very helpful.
