The bottom of this route is pretty tough to find. It is probably a lot easier to find the top anchor and rappel to the bottom. Follow the posted instructions, and use the additional photos I've uploaded to help you get to the right spot on the top of the cliff. The single glue-in bolt anchor is low to the ground under a small overhanging outcrop, but it is easy to access once you locate it.
