Actually there are no specific rap anchors. The traverse left lands you on an almost inescapable choss covered alcove. The best option is to traverse right instead and find a bolt for No Place Like Home and rap off that.

This route is worth doing. It needs its own anchors.

Historically speaking, going to the alcove on the left and then having to climb back out of it and over to the right is kind of cool. Good test of problem solving skills.

I solved that problem by not doing it in the first place. Good test of judgement skills in my opinion.

Or a lack of a spirit for adventure.

The dihedral just left of this route is a 5.5 called 'father's day' put up by myself and window-ho. 1st pitch, easy dihedral, second pitch follows a flake that leads to the top of the cliff. 100' (i think)

This climb now has ring anchors. At the top of the crack, and in the alcove.

Really enjoyable climb. If you come up to do Whiteout and don't get on this, you should probably smack yourself.

A hidden gem. Special thanks to the anchor fairy!

Excellent route now that has anchors. Thanks for placing them.

It is a nice route, it has anchors, but needs chains, as the two bolts are side-by-side, and that generates lots of force when rapping or top -roping.

This is such an underrated route. It's so fun. It's got an off-width, a splitter crack, and a finger crack on slab. Only problem with it is it's too short. It climbs like a sport route, and the grade accurately reflects that.
