It is mentioned briefly in a couple of the individual route descriptions, but there is a decent (but not awesome) threaded anchor near the top of the formation which avoids the 4th class descent. we left one sling and a ring up there. to beef it up, it woudl be nice to bring a long piece of webbing and maybe a nut or two. use black webbing.
i loved this tiny little crag. all three routes would be PG13 in standard RR-speak. to get a little more mileage, the face TRs just about anywhere at 5.7ish.
a great way to finish off the day after armatron (10 minute uphill from there on the well-cairned juniper peak summit hiker's trail) or topping out the jackrabbit routes.

|Didn't see any webbing on top in April, 2010. Easy enough to scramble down to the west anyway.|
