This route (chimney, then coming to outside) is super dirty with lots of debris in the crack near the top that will fall if disturbed . Don't run a top rope and probably best to not have a second follow. Also, belayer is better off deep inside cave. Wear a helmet too!
We climbed yesterday, tons of sand came down when rope disturbed it, then a rock about 1/4lb hit my partner smack on her helmet.
Also, anchor is two pounded in pitons. You can back it up with a #5, possibly sling a rock.
Be aware! I'm staying away.
