Easily. If you are down with single point rap anchors and leaving biners. Otherwise, not so much.

F*ck it Mustard, if you are gonna slide that way, why not just go all in? Get yourself a spool of gym rope and a backpack full of quickdraw thingys and just run it together as one and lower off. Done and done. You're welcome.

With all that rope drag, you'll need to belay with a winch.
