Going out to zion to solo touchstone. I was wondering if anyone in the online world knows if it is possible to rap with a 70m rope from gigantic tree at the base of the last pitch? I've done the standard gulley with a partner before and don't wish to repeat it. I was just wondering if it takes two lines or if i can make it with a 70. Planning on taking some cord to rappell with but want to leave it on the ground. Thanks in advance. Greg Howland

I'm not sure you'll make it even with a 70. If memory serves correct the 3rd or 4th pitch seemed to be about 40-50 meters anchor to anchor. Bring some 6mm tag and you'll be stylin! Greg G

You can easily rap the route with two 70m ropes. Bring some cord to back up some of the existing anchor tat. whittlesticks
