Description 

Guidebook description: Not a beginner's climb. I Agree!

Pitch 1: Climb the left-facing cornwers at the right edge of the 'Triumverate' face, belaying below and left of the big chimney that penetrates the ceilings above.
Pitch 2: Move up and climb the crux chimney.

Location 

Just below the tiered cielings next to 'Triumverate'

Protection 

Pro is good, but route gets airy and somewhat exposed towards the middle.

Would you rap this route from the rib and could I use 1 60 meter rope to rap back down?

Yes, but it's very close and you have to do it correctly. See comments under The Rib.
