are there anchors atop this??

My recollection (hazy) is that descent was by rappel right down the route, and I think the anchor point was slings around a block or something similar. There may have been a way to scramble off the back, but if there was, it was probably not easy. I also don't remember if you could get by with just one rope. This does not see a lot of traffic, so it would probably be worthwhile to have some extra sling material to reinforce things.
