Bring lots of tat to TR this one. There are 2 bolts on top of the tower, which can be used to access the former 2-bolt anchor on the face. I pulled one of those out by hand at 2009 RRR. A decent TR, if you have the KSE to set it up.

On 2/9/2011, the LVCLC with support from the ASCA replaced one of the bolts on top of the tower with a 1/2x3.5". I would still recommend bringing a lot of extension material for this one.

Caution: As of 03/14/12, there was only one anchor. There is a hole where the second bolt for the anchor(s) used to be.

If you are referring to the anchor which is down on the face, yes there is only one bolt. It's in a poor location for setting up a toprope, but does make a nice directional. Or are you referring to the anchor on top of the pillar?
