This is the rappel from the top of the climb, it goes directly through the west window blind of the tower. I packed two 70m ropes the entire way up and used them both to rappel the entire route. However, if I did it again, I would take one single 70M rope and do two rappels. Only for the sake of weight in my backpack. If you use the first set of rap anchors you come to (larger chains, vertical bolt placement) (meaning the anchor is built with one bolt directly above the other, with a chain reaching to the bottom) you will be able to do two rappels with a 70m rope. 60m maybe... don't quote me on it. There is another set of anchors at the top of the climb just west of the rap anchors we used, I have no idea what they are for. They looked less desirable to get to.The second rap anchors look exactly like the first and sit on a good ledge.
