Note that the double-rope rap lines do not originate from an anchor on the 'standard' descent of Solar Slab Gully (SSG). The 'standard' descent starts at a bolted anchor on the east side of SSG.

Likely, these double ropes instead originate from an anchor on the west side of SSG that is located "behind a boulder" when topping out from "lower tier" routes to the west. If so, at least one party reported some difficulty with rapping that way with a single rope.
