This goes very easily in two pitches and can even be done in one.

Often wet in winter/spring...

Classic corner though.

Watch the rap on this one....The only tree left with slings, etc is to the right of the route. Below this rap tree there are numerous rope eating flakes and funky twisted rope eating pine tree branches. We donated two biners to make the pull easier on the slings and quick links.

There are now bolts & rap rings at the top of this climb. We did a 2-rope rappel to the ground from that anchor, trending out climber's left along a ramp/arete below. Our ropes pulled with no hang-ups. Your mileage may vary.

Judging by what we had left, you'd probably just reach the ground rappelling on a single 70m rope. You could also rap on a single 60m and downclimb the last bit to the ground -- if you're into that sort of thing!
