After the ledge and short blocky section, there were only a couple of moves to reach two nuts that seemed pretty locked in. (the 'fixed gear'?) Definitely not 80 feet and not up to the roof, but couldn't see any thing else up there so didn't bother.

october 2017 anchor was only one fixed hex with dyneema sling and a quick link. I had nothing to leave so that is what I lowered on. The piece was solid and the sling was in good shape but I would recommend being prepared to leave something more to make it redundant. You decide.

Pass. Lots of other good stuff to climb at this wall. Chossy hollow rock all over on this one and while the moves are 5.7ish, it's awkward and not something I'd ever put a new trad leader on. The red hex is still there as of April 2019. Sling seemed OK, but sew the route up and prussik between yourself and the belayer side of the rope as you lower & clean. If the sling on the hex blows hopefully the prussik and piece below keep you in one piece.
