Super classic overhanging face on the North Face. Best rock-quality in Pinnacles?

Someone placed a lower off anchor 6 feet below the lip of the overhang, I assume to facilitate lowering off with a 60-meter rope. The problem with the anchor is it was placed just below the route's upper, heartbreaker crux, so stopping at the anchor means nice try, but you didn't finish the route. All of the early ascents of the route climbed to the summit.
An anchor just above the final crux is the way to go, but people would need to be aware that a 70-meter rope is needed to lower off.
