There's an easier descent than the one shown in the picture. As you head to the climber's left, keep going past the gully marked in the picture (which I really didn't like the look of), all the way to the south end of the formation. A low angle slab will lead you down to the side of the formation, and a quick boulder hop will get you back to the base. More roundabout, but also much more secure.
