Also gets my vote for best 10a crack. A 70m rope will get you back to the big ledge by rapping off the MX anchor. We used a 60m, and did some gear clip in down climbing.
Mostly thin fingers, don't really need triple above .75 Camalot.

|A note on the rappel: There are some rope-eating pockets if you rap from the top of MX, plus you only get down to the ledge and then have do do some downclimbing. A better option would be to walk about 50 feet to climbers' right from the top of the route and rap down from some chains just left of the top of Ed's Jam. There is an intermediate rap station just under a roof about 25m down; if you use this intermediate rap station you can rap down to your packs and avoid the downclimbing (the downclimbing is not bad, but probably overall it's actually quicker to just rap to your packs rather than downclimb while dragging your rope with you).|
