I still haven't verified if 2x50M will work from the top face bolts to get you back to the first ledge finishing P1, though I think that's why you get those cave bolts, because a 50 works with that on the climb up but won't let you get to the original trad ledge for P3.

Or, whether a single 70M will allow a rap from the cave to go 35M okay to the climber's right bolts above first ledge. (This is where people come out of the system on descent with a single 60M, it's a scary thing).

The only reason I'm doing all this is because this rock gets used a lot by climbers brand new to multi-pitch climbing (& why not, it's a fun climb).

Basically an overview of the standard routes that are usually climbed & the rap descent routes available.

Just use caution when considering rapping the face - a single 60m will not work, and there is a possibility of rapping on a lead climber. A single 70m might work from the cave down; but I have not tried it.

However, a single 60m works great to the gully going West from the top-out (good bolts are now next to the small tree). Not to mention, it helps keep the flow moving on a busy weekend day.

Some of the other routes are not shown (like the original CMC 5.6 line -- this pic vantage didn't give a good view of it).
