Once you arrive at the top of the routes you should be able to see a few bolts on Sea Biscuit. Walk around to the left to a ~5.6 downclimb the north facing wall into the belay area. Otherwise you could rappel from the top anchorsof Sea Biscuit, but they're not there specifically for rappelling, so the first step will be an exciting one.
