This pic was taken half way up the Labyrinth.  Walk back past the boulders in this photo and you will find the start of the deep dark crux chimney pitch.  There is an alternative traditionally protected crack climbing start to "For the People".  Either bring .4-2 sized cams or just TR this variation.  Common Wealth starts on a big 3 foot by 5 foot block.  The rap straight back down abra with two ropes is fine and with the disadvantage of tagging a second rope, you conveniently end up right back at your packs.  But if you are looking to rap with a single rope and ditch the tag line, this photo shows the starting anchor of a single rope descent climbers left of the top out on abra. The only downside is that you have to scramble, squeeze and walk back to your packs from the base of the single rope rap.  "A Caballo" Belay atop pitch one.
