The far right anchor chain should be moved to the far left (glue-in) bolts, if that makes sense and anyone is in the mood for a little light rigging. Quicklinks are finger-tight, just put them back in upside-down (tightening with gravity). Otherwise, in the meantime watch the tree behind you when cleaning the first bolt...

Enjoyable route and worth doing. One scary choss hold coming out of the midway hueco detracts.
