Currently (September 2014), the anchors of this climb sports two bolts without hangars. They are located on the top of the boulder so you're able to girth-hitch a sling for the finishing mantle, but I wouldn't recommend toproping off of them. Lack of hangars makes cleaning difficult too. There is a rock to the right you can wrap the rope around to rappel, but it is strenuous as it puts you too far right and you're still battling the overhang.
