Just a couple of points: First, there is no anchor on the summit itself--one must downclimb the final summit block to reach the first rappel anchor. Don't worry--it's not that hard. Second, the first rappel can be done with a single rope, but the second rappel requires two. On the second rappel, throw your rope towards Spire Two.

|A 70m will get you to the ground with a few feet to spare from the anchors on top of the first pitch.|
