This route has shiny lead bolts but no top anchor.
Your choices for an anchor are:
A) very strange and off to side directional using the top bolt from this route and the anchor from Ancient Sea.
B) Place then equalize a variety of cams and tri-cams in the pocketed soft stone above
C) sling a large rock 50 ft back of the edge and equalize it with the last bolt on the route.

Either way it is worth the trouble for a fun route.

This climb is missing a bolt near the top. Bolt 3 or 4 I think. Not sure why, but it wasn't replaced when this route was rebolted. Be ready to run it out a bit to the last bolt.
