There are at least two ways to reach the anchor, both with their share of spice.
From the ledge, either:
Option 1: Power up the arete and mantle
Option 2: Execute a tricky traverse left to a hidden crimp and straight up to the chains

Fun climb either way; unfortunate the route is so short.

Really liked this route. Started by straddling the arete to the left of the dihedral, pulling on good jugs. Not sure if that's what was intended as the line in the picture starts within the dihedral, but it was fun climbing.

There is only 3 bolts on this climb, just for clarification. I did the top move with the left crimp then heel locked on the shelf and rocked up on it reaching the holds on the top. Kind of committing and strenuous I thought for only being a 9. One of the better sport routes here.
