    Gear climbing doesn't get much more fun and gymnastic than this. A crack-climber's TGV.

    There were two nuts with two biners fixed at the lip of the route (by the old Star Drive). I don't know if it was a top rope anchor or a bail anchor, but I took them out and left them on the first ledge of the route - if you want them back.

    If you turn the roof & then go up & right a bit, there is a 2 bolt anchor. Wouldn't help you back clean all the gear on the route, but at least the route concludes at a logical point/stance.
