Descent via two (60m ropes) rappels. A 70m rope might make the ground in one rap, but it would be very close.
The route appears to be little more than a 15' tall testpiece, but the channel out of sight above - and exiting it - is equally interesting. Nice job, tP!

There is a sport style anchor at the top now and a 70m rope will reach the ground. It is possible to rap using a 50 or 60m rope using an oak tree halfway down as an anchor.
