3 out of 5 stars Confusing start

Initially I started this route below some two obvious bolts anchors with no wrap rings (I decided to be a good guy and I left a quick link on each). I followed a right facing dihedral up to a large ledge where I found a second set of anchors that you could not see from the ground. I went back down and ascended the slab up to those anchors (no placements and about 30 feet of easy slab). Then I went up the turret itself which is a flaring finger crack with some crimps around it to the top. Small tree with several pieces of webbing and rap rings to rappel down.
