Sorry but this beta photo is just plain wrong. The original first pitch climbs the obvious splitter that you start out on for Rocking Raspberries (More Direct Line).

The route is two equal length pitches when climbing the original direct line. Likewise the original line did not have the Rocking Raspberries anchors and the belay was near the entrance to the caverns located in the corner.

I would be leary of doing one long two rope rappel from the summit anchors. I have seen ropes get hung up on three seperate occasions. A 60m rope and two rappels will get you to the ground without rope hang ups.
