Comments: You can climb all routes with a 50m rope.
You just can't link pitches then.
Rapelling is no problem with 50m, absolutely never a problem with 60m rope.

Comments: I linked pitch 4 and 5 to avoid the hanging belay inbetween.
No problem with 60m ropes, should be possible with 50m ropes as well.
The belay on top of pitch 3 has 2 new 10mm bolts.

Comments: It's possible to top out and get to the yosemite falls trail
The way is pretty obvious with some 4th class and lots of bushwhacking,
at least not worse than the aproach and the descent described in the supertaco guidebook plus you have a nice view and a kind of a summit.
