FYI: the anchor at the top of the final splitter corner is marginal. As of two days ago it consisted of a single good bolt, a rusty quarter incher and two modern, high diameter bolts both protruding significantly from the rock. Not a death anchor, but far from up to standard for such a classic route. For that matter, the anchor above the crux pitch is also poor, though it can be easily backed up with tight hands sized gear.

Derek,

Wouldn't it be better to post this on the Cloud Tower route page?

I think this route is one-anchor-short of being rappable with a 70m. How about adding an anchor on the first rap (not on the climbing route) before worrying about a 4-bolt anchor.

I know it's possible to keep climbing, top out, and rap CC. That's usually asking for a cluster.

Me.

i rapped the route with a 70 last march. the first rap requires a swing into the final belay, but it's otherwise relatively straightforward.
