I wonder how the OP came up with his claim of 60 feet. I used 97 feet of rope from the base to the single modern bolt at the top — and this was after reaching down to unclip the first bolt and extending the next two bolts. Above, I placed a red C3, a purple C4, and a red C4, before clipping the fourth (last) bolt.

The single summit bolt isn't located for lowering or rapping, although it could be greatly extended to be part of an anchor built for toproping. You could rap from the nearby Tiger anchors, or the Godzilla anchors. Sally and I walked down. Excellent pitch!

Very fun for the grade, very easy to rap from nearby DPT anchor. I used two cams, finger/thin hand sizes. Many thanks to the setter!
