You can "carefully" rap with one 60m rope.
You have to stop on the ledge next to the big rotten chimney. This ledge is 10 feet left and 6 feet higher than the start of Kemosabe & Tonto, Just before you run out of rope and are about to slip off the ends, your feet will hit the ledge. This won't allow a toprope since the ends of the rope do not reach the cruxy start of Kemosabe.

|Bob, thanks for replacing the Great Burrito bolts with 1/2" stainless. Question: do you drill out the old hole, or drill a new one?|

|We pull out the old 1/4 inch bolt (usually they come out much too easily) then drill out the existing hole for the 1/2 inch bolt.|

We were there today and actually had a real great time. For one it is sunny all day which is nice in the cooler seasons and there were no crowds. The crag has a nice mixture of routes and we didn't find the rock quality to be that bad at all (thought a bit grainy in places). Also there must have been some additions since the original description as there are now some bolts on the routes. Fat Free on the far right is a real nice mixed climb which I would easily give two stars.
There is one anchor now (about the center of the top) from which you can carefully rappel with a 60 meter. There are no chains on the bolts and was equipped with webbing so you might wish to bring some to back it up in case it has deteriorated. The walk off is not that straightforward and would probably scare a newer climber.
