CONDITION REPORT 

There is a very hollow hour-glass feature near the top of this climb (after the wideness) that could easily be ripped off. Heads up!

There's currently a left-behind anchor up there, the tri-cam and purple nut are recent but the rest might be pretty old and is on shallow nuts. The anchor ought to be at the top of the business, under the hourglass choss but that would require large cams or (ahem!) hardware.
