Did this route really need a set of rap anchors half way up the top slab? Not sure why they are there or when they were added but there's another 5-10m of perfectly good climbing up clean solid rock above them (to another set of anchors which are still just below the top!) - in my opinion these anchors detract from this classic all trad line.
