You can rap this route with a 70 meter from the top once the climb is cleaned. The leader can lead the whole thing in one pitch but would have to pull the rope through the draws to get back to the ground. Best strat seems to have the second come up to the top with the leader and rappel individually back to the ground with a 70 meter.

You only need quick draws for the whole climb. It is really wonderful and pumpy.
