Best of Both Worlds

Climb the crack (hidden in the photo) on the right side inside of the chimney, or climb the chimney strictly to gain access to the ledge. Make some moves onto the face, then up to some small ledges. Anchors on the big ledge to the left on the tower, or continue up to the top of black bluff.
Another variation is to climb the chimney or the crack, then traverse over to the thin small roof portion that finishes on "Control Tower" anchors or link up the rest of "Best of Both Worlds".
Located on the right side on the north face of Black Bluff.
Standard rack to #3 camalot
Couple runners for the ledges

I am not sure if the anchors that the description is talking about are exclusive to this route or if this route shares anchors with aurora borealis, but if "Best of both worlds" had its own anchors at one time, they are no longer there. I climbed up to the aurora anchors and used a directional to anchor this route.

No anchors have been removed, but there are anchors on top of the detached tower making up one wall of the chimney (Control Tower anchors).
