Sounds like something I've done up there, but I'm not sure.

Fixed gear anchor is no longer there, you can clean the gear by downclimbing.

I mainly just used the crack for pro, the face around it had great holds, nice transistion for someone not used to crack technique. The two nuts are still there, but it looks like you could climb a few feet over them to get to a ledge and work your way over to rap from a tree.

the guidebook calls this one "theodor seuss geisel." WARNING: the anchor consists of 3 equalized, small nuts which are wedged between the main wall and a hollow sounding flake. i lowered off of it very gently.

Do you trust cord that's been there for 2 years? I added a piece of blue webbing and another quick link on 23 April 2011, but the webbing is only connected to one of the 3 nuts.

?!Chossiest route ever?!, followed by the sketchiest anchor ever. I should have ate the gear and made my own anchor. . . But from what section of choss block do I make the anchor?!?! !!BE CAREFUL!!

There are bolt anchors on this route now. However, still very chossy. Would not recommend.
