This is the route we followed. After the 4th class blocks visible at the very bottom, we got in a #1 cam. 8' above this initial placement, Aaron found an old but solid piton. 8' higher, a newer 3/16" bolt, and 8' higher yet, a left-bent piton, old but solid. This last piton held his 15' fall. I wouldn't trust the webbing on the pitons, though. Directly below the belay, there was a single bolt with many pieces of webbing. Not sure if it is supposed to be part of the route we came up, but it didn't make logical sense for the route. It might be a single rap anchor. The rap anchor is on the left hand side - a splendid double-bolt/chain set up with a 3" diameter steel rap ring.
