Dihedral gets harder towards the top - I found it hard to hang out and place gear. I couldn't find any bolts on top so I traversed left to Stoner's Boner anchors.

What a route: great gear, fun climbing. The anchors marked in the guidebook have been chopped (WTF?). So, you get to the same ledge as the centerpiece topout and you have a choice: continue up or set an anchor and then traverse over left. I chose to keep going, and the gear thinned out considerably and the climbing got harder than 10- (IMO). Ended up traversing right and going to a tree and then doing some shenanigans to get off. I'd recommend setting an anchor on the centerpiece ledge (where the chopped anchor is/was) and then walk/traverse over left to get off. The route itself, though more continuous, has no moves as hard as the cruxes of crows nest. Standard rack, I'd bring an extra yellow tcu.
