We left a pin and quick-link about 105 ft (33M) down from the top anchors. It is a few feet below the "overhang" on rappeller's left near the top of a 25ft-high right-facing corner. [See photo "Detail of Overhang" posted to "$9-Boys".) The pin is about 40-50 ft above the 2nd double bolt anchor, and is about 20 ft right of the "off-width" crack on the route. A single 70m makes it easily. If you miss the pin, or if someone pulls it, the crack accepts mid-size-cams or nuts, so you wont be stranded.
Make the short rap to the double bolt anchor below.
From the double bolt anchor a single 70M makes it to a small tree/bush ledge slightly to rappeller's right. We started climbing there, but another short rap (40-50 ft) off the 4-5 inch diameter pine would get you to the ground.
