Separated from the main wall at Ridgeline, Ridgeback starts on a wall about 20 yards downhill and around the corner to the right from the other routes. The route ascends the left side of this wall to the top of a stand-alone pinnacle. Though well-bolted, you can supplement with nuts and cams, though the cracks tend to be slightly grainy higher on the route.
The shuts sit on a horizontal ledge on top, so plan to anchor in and belay your second to the top. Then rap back towards the main Ridgeline wall, on the opposite side of the actual route. Making sure everyone has their own rappel device speeds things up.
A top-rope setup might work with long, equalized slings, though I haven't tried this.
