Where is the red rope going? Top roping maria first pitch from the rap anchor?

It looks to me like the green rope(s) are hanging from the GT rappel station, while the obvious vertical red rope is hanging from the mid-cliff bolts. They are over the route Kama Sutra or so.

There is a fainter red rope behind both of those that follows the traversing first pitch of Maria.

Yes, JSH got it. The red rope was from two women running through single pitches to try and get as many in a day as possible starting from Uberfall. I think one of the woman's records was up 26 or 27.

The crowded, yet always entertaining Gunks. The green rope is the rappel from Maria while the fainter, horizontal red rope is the route Maria takes to gain the corner.
