Awesome, exposed route. Josh got off route on the crux and made a pitch that's already stiff for .10a that much harder. After that it's pitch after pitch of steep, spectacular climbing in the 5.8-9 range. A bizarre, scary episode occured as we started the rappels. I traversed easy ground to the first anchor (all anchors consist of slings fixed around natural horns or threads) and prepared to clip in. I hesistated and checked the block the sling was around--it was completely detached and would have pulled off had I weighted the slings. I checked the long "backup" sling that ran out of sight around a corner, presumably attached to a nut or piton...when I looked around the corner, I saw that it was attached to nothing! We could think of no explanation other than some sicko deliberately set this anchor as a death trap. We took all the slings and moved them to a different, nearby horn that was bomber. Scary and wierd!
