We managed to miss the hanging belay and got from the bottom of the arch to the thread belay with a 60m rope - though I did have to climb up a few feet from the belay to enable the leader to get there! a 61m rope would probably be long enough ;-)

Looking down the arch on Standard Route from "the mailbox". If you've got a 60m and you're coming up the arch and not the quartz pocket variation, do a semi-hanging belay here, you won't reach the thread-belay. 70m rope might make it.
