For 14.13 part c

After balancing :

the cathode is Cl2 + 2e --> 2Cl-

the anode is H2 --> 2H+ +2e

The book adds these and gets Cl2+H2 --> 2Cl-

I don't understand what happens to 2H+ once this is added or if I am missing some conceptual step.

That seems like a typo. The H+ shouldn't just disappear.
