The anchors on this route are hard to find if you don't know where they are. I ran out of rope and realized I had passed them.
At the top of the dihedral where it turns right and forms a shelf, from here go right past a tree and the anchors are on the right. The anchors are about a total of twenty feet to the right of the shelf.
Definitely use lots of runners on this one. The rope drag was so bad I had to stop and pull up lots of slack to progress. It was a real pain to bring up my second.

|Definitely consider making this a two-pitch by belaying at the top of the dihedral before continuing up the flake. That should minimize rope drag. Also be aware that a 60m rope will only let you rap to the top of the first boulder, and you'll have to down-climb the boulder. The other option is to walk off the dome to the east.|

|Yep... didn't look at this one on Mountain Project before we climbed it and the 60m didn't reach the belay boulder we used - turned into an easy walk off, though. The exposure on this one... awesome. We did the dihedral up the right with the man-sized crevice you go over and "cave" area you can look at to the right.|

|A 60 Meter rope WILL NOT make it all the way down from the anchors.|
