Any advice on what there is in the way of an anchor at the top of Shock Horror at Ilkley Rocky Valley? Always thought there didn’t seem to be much up there!

When I headpointed it I top roped it first. Anchor is fine but you need a decent length of spare rope (maybe 10m or so if memory serves) to get you right back. There is also a crack over to the right (as you look out from the top) which is nearer (maybe 3m ish) I had anchor in each of these two points equalised. Took a bit of setting up and a bit of padding out to stop rub but worked well. 

Brilliant route by the way.
